    So, my friend just got a new monitor for his computer. It's an emachines T6410 and has XP and a 3200+ AMD Athlon 64 processor. The monitor is an LG Flatron and when we hooked it up to his computer and turn it on, I'm not sure, but I think the computer isn't sending any signal to the monitor. Because the monitor turns on and the blue light comes on, then the LG symbol comes up, but after that it says power saving mode. It won't show anything else, it just stars hibernating.

    Any help would be appreciated, I'm kinda stumped.
