i thank the replys i had to my earlier problem,but no luck to the problem.i tried 2 other computers.each worked fine on the monitor, no problems. i have tried all the sugestions from my earlier posting, but its still 'signal fail'.i tried the same vidio card on each of the computers. can it be the motherboard on the problem pc? its the only part that has not been checked out, it is also the only pc that has not beeped on on startup.thanks for any ideas.

Have you gone into the control panel and looked at the Monitor drivers to see if they are OK?

That message 'signal fail' is not from your computer, its from the monitor itself..

Is there any chance the computer is NOT booting up?, as this sounds like the problem. A lot more fundamental than esoteric driver problems?

If the monitor and video card bot h work in other computers, you might find that the video card is incompatible with the motherboard (not an unknown situation). Try another video card, if you can.
