    Re: Monitor issue

    Do you have an old Monitor - or a friendly new neighbour? It could be useful to test your set-up with another Monitor: to confirm that it's not the Monitor itself that somehow became unsettled during the move.

    Re: Monitor issue

    You moved? When things get moved, picked up and set down again, there are always a few things that get worked loose. Given that information, have you opened the case and made certain that the card is firmly seated in its slot? Try it, and go so far as to take it out and re-seat it. After that, take Unkamunka's advice and start begging <img src=/S/please.gif border=0 alt=please width=31 height=23> your neighbours for a monitor to test with.

    Another likely cause is a bent pin where you plugged the monitor cable in. Disconnect the cable and look very carefully to see if the pins all look straight.

    Re: Monitor issue

    Thanks to everyone,

    Back from my Xmas break now. I'll check the pins, plugs and seating of various cards. I'll also test another monitor on my system. Failing all that a new monitor may be the go.

    Have a great new year.

    Definitely try to find an alternate Monitor. If your new neighbours, aren't prepared to lend you a Monitor, you can achieve the same test by having them install your Monitor on their system. After all, if the Monitor itself does check out, it may end up meaning that you need a new Video Card instead.
