you need to slow down and be clear.

When you say the screen goes off, what happens.

The screen goes off? The PC shuts down? (is the local drive still f)?

ok, screen goes off and pressing a key is not bringing it back up.

Does this occur with a different computer attached to the monitor, or this monitor attached to a different computer?

wait, what did not do it on his....his computer and your monitor or his monitor and your computer.

Have you installed the video drivers for this since installing xp?

What drivers, EXACTLY did you install

you tried his monitor on your computer and it was fine

and you tried your computer on his monitor and it was fine

but your monitor and your computer are not fine? That is somewhat hard to believe.

In device manager, are there any yellow !s?
