I just finished my first attempt at building a computer. When I power it up, everything appears to be working except for the monitor. It stays in standby mode. If I turn off the monitor, then back on, it stays on for about 3 seconds and cuts back off. I hooked it up to my old computer and it works just fine. I need some help from my fellow geeks. Thanks in advance.

What brand power supply are you using, and what is the manufacturer and model of your grafix card? And do we assume you are using Windows XP of one flavor or another?

This is a barebones kit from Zip Zoom Fly. It came with the ATX POWER SUPPLY already installed. I am going to install Windows XP PRO Sp2 when I get the monitor to work. I'm not using a graphics card. The motherboard has video and audio onboard.

By 17"Flat Panel monitor are you saying an LCD monitor or a Flat Screen CRT monitor?
