Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. If you had the system set up "overseas" and then brought it to the US, you will need to change the setting on the power supply. The US power grid is 120 VAC, much of the rest of the world is 240VAC. Most power supplies have a plastic slide switch on the back that allows you to easily select the one you need. Now as far as the monitor goes, you need to refer to the manufacturers manual or go to their web page to find out about the power settings option on that.

Thanks but I moved from hong kong to Australia so the voltage is the same I really am starting to think that the whole mainboard just quit on me or one of the capacitors was lost in the middle of transit what do you think?
