my monitor will not turn on when I boot up.

Specs: Windows XP, 1gig ram
I have connected a different monitor... won't work either. This problem began a couple months ago and was only now and then. Figured I would need a new monitor. Not the problem... HELP!

Regardless of whether you are using onboard video or not, try ( borrow ) a video card.

Possibly a faulty graphics card. If you got onboard video (as well) connect the monitor to that output. The bios has possibly reset to onboard device rather than graphics card. If you got a TV out, connect to a TV.

Nvidia Control Panel sometimes resets itself if you clone the video options and you shut down incorrectly.
