Hi Lance

That message usually means that your monitor cable isn't plugged in properly to your video card.

If it is plugged in, if you have had it out lately check to make sure you haven't bent a pin over when plugging back in. They can be hell to straighten if you have.

That message is usually brought up when your monitor is powered but doesn't see any video signals from your computer. It could also be that your video card is not properly seated in your motherboard.
