    i have a dell dimension xps m233s w/windows 98 and a couple of days ago i unpugged it and moved it to another room, when i plugged it back in and started it up the light on the monitor would turn green and after a couple seconds it would turn to yellow but nothing would come up on the screen. i tried another monitor but the same thing happens, and i also reseated the video card and still nothing. i'm very concerned because i have important data on the computer that i need soon and i refuse to wait on hold with dell tech support EVER again!!! Please Help!!!

    First thing I would check is the cable to make sure no pins are bent. If that does not do it then reseat the video card.

    Do what N2gun has said, and also try this... If the monitor is powered by your PSU (one cable from the wall socket to the computer, and a power out from computer to monitor) try powering the moitor directly from a wall socket. I had to do this several months ago as my old PSU was giving up the ghost. Worth a try unless its already directly connected.
