Hi
Sounds like a monitor cable might have worked loose. Shut down and unplug, plug in the monitor and re-start.

Hi NazDebo...

I does kinda sound like the mobo is having problems. Does the machine ever complete post? Do you hear a system beep?

Hi
Yeah, I think wannabe 1 is right, mobo fried, but try using another monitor (if available) to rule out monitor failure. Just a suggestion (ignoring rule #1) :whistling:
