Specs: Windows XP
Right, i power the dell up. it reaches the Windows XP loading screen but then the monitor turns black and goes to standby.
it does this everytime, i have no access to putting it in Safe Mode etc etc.
it is also not the monitor, as i have used three now.
any help would be greatly appreciated :)

I would guess a video card problem. First, are you using the onboard video or agp card? Switch between the two and see if it remedies the problem. Also try different video cables. If these don't help it might be the board.
