[color=#FF0000][size=3]Please help! I was watching a downloaded video on media player and the monitor went blank. I rebooted and still nothing on monitor. I can't even see to reboot in safe mode. I tried loading the XP disk at reboot but still a blank monitor. Not sure if the whole HD got wiped or what. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Is there anything at all on your monitor?
Can you try connecting another monitor? I want to make sure it's not your monitor that's gone bad.

When I reboot, there is a series of several small beeps, though it does not seem the system is "booting", it's hard to tell as I can't view anything on screen.

Being a new monitor doesn't mean it can't be malfunctioning :whistling:

Did you check wether all the cables are properly connected?

Is there any activity on your PC (can you hear anything, see a light flashing) after a reset?

just trying to establish where the error may be...

several short beeps on my Asus means graphics card error/memory, when it's happened to me I reseated the graphics card and the monitor worked fine again.
