monitor turns black

Specs: N/A
i have windows ME and i brought my computer downstairs to my new room. . . (havent used it in a while) and it started up perfecly fine then randomly shutoff. now everytime i turn it on it starts up like normal but automaticly goes to the setup utility and is already "on" the system/pci frequency(added that just incase) so i ignore that, go to exit saving changes (or discarding changes, i tried both) then the monitor screen turns black and the light flashes orange... i cannot get it to work now.please help

If it worked before you moved it but not afterwards, you've either hooked something up incorrectly or something got knocked loose inside the case.

oops i meant it worked the first time i tried it downstairs.... went to the desktop like it should. but then after it randomly shutdown, thats when the problems started so im pretty sure its all connected properly.it always works fine until i exit the setup.i try unplugging the cables and retrying but nothing...do you know whats wrong? :] i dont think i was clear above.

uh oh i dont know if i replied properly because i cannot see my previous message. but in my first post, i meant to say it worked the first time when i brought it downstairs and that it was not until it randomly shutdown. that is when the monitor problems began. do you know what caused this?
