The last few days I have been working with alot of programs and windows. When I decide I am finished for the night I just set my computer to hibernate. When I am ready to use it again I just press the power button, vista does it's thing, and all my windows are back. It's great.
Well, last night I finished what I was working on and shutdown the computer.
This morning when I turned it on the computer seemed like it was booting but the monitors didn't power on. All the fans and lights were on, the CD drives were doing there thing but no monitors.
Concerned I moved one of the two monitors to another computer to test it. It worked fine. I moved the other one, that one worked fine as well.
I decided to test my video card so I put it into another computer. It worked fine. I hooked the two monitors previously mentioned up to it and they both worked fine.
I moved it all back to the origional computer and tried it again. Still didn't work.
I used a different monitor to test the card in the origional computer and it didn't work.
I cleared the BIOS. Still didn't work.
I unpluged the two CD drives and the HD and still nothing.
I made sure the card was snug and the onboard fan was on. It was.
Here are my thoughts:
I don't know if the hibernating has anything to do with it because the monitors won't turn on and load to the BIOS before windows starts.
The monitors power lights are an amber color. If I turn the monitors off then on the light turns to green for 5 or so seconds then turns amber again.
I unplugged the CD's and HD and nothing changed.
I don't have an onboard video so I can't test that.
I know the Card and the monitors are working fine because I tested them in another computer
