Hey wassup guys?

I bought a new computer today, when i start up the computer my monitor is on standby, as i press some buttons on my monitor i get the message "In power save mode, press a button on the keyboard or move the mouse".

I cannot use my mouse and when plugged in my keyboard does not work.

My monitor is a Dell, i have yet to install windows XP on my machine so there is no OS, I also cannot open my CD/DVD drive.

Any suggestions?, thanks.

I would guess that the monitor is not connected properly check all the cables - The main thing to check is if it is in the right port. A lot of computers have two monitor ports - one higher up - one lower down.

If there is another port lower down try that one.

If that doesn't work i would take the monitor to another computer and test it.

If you can't open the CD/DVD drive and you don't see any posting information when you turn on the computer, then there's something wrong with it. I assume this isn't a brand new computer.
