When starting up the computer i recive a message on my moniter saying " off mode 5 sec". I cannot see anything with startup. No safe mode menus or anything. I have checked the cables for moniter I have checked the Video card to see if it is connected right and tight. Still nothing.

Hey there Mr.Chow, yip this sounds like something to do with the monitor.

Try and look for a "menu" button on the monitor (A physical button you have to press) and try and see if you can change settings to defualt.

let me know. Cool :whistling:

Hi Mr.Chow...

Have you or anyone else worked on your machine lately? Changed motherboards, PCI or AGP cards, removed or changed Hard Drives, cd-roms...anything like that? This almost sound like a shorted motherboard or loose cable.
