    I just bought a new PC but kept my old monitor. When i plug the monitor in it goes directly into sleep mode. If i unplug it it comes out of sleep mode and says the connection is no good. The monitor still works fine with the old computer. Whats going on here?

    So as soon as you turn the computer on it does that? It never shows anything? Are you sure the new computer is actually working? If the computer isn't and its not sending a signal to the monitor it'll do just that.

    I'm not sure it's working. The power light comes on, the fan is going and i can open the cd rom drawer. But until i can get a monitor going, I don't know what is going on with it.

    Good point you need to see if you are plugged into the right video slot.
