OK, I turned off my computer, unplugged everything, fiddled around inside a bit, plugged everything back in, and now the monitor is stuck in standby mode. I've had this problem before (after a power outage) and through a certain series of plugging things in and out and turning things on and off, have corrected it. I think I left the monitor on when I unplugged everything. I install high speed data connections at work and have had this happen at customers homes after I've installed a NIC in their computer, and have corrected it the same way. Does anyone know the magic combination to make the monitor kick in??

also check your video cable to make sure a pin did not get bent over. Have seen that happen a couple times.

Are you sure the problem is the monitor and not the computer? If your computer is not working, the monitor will not turn on because it's not getting a signal from the video card.
