    I have put a motherboard and a monitor in a new case with a Pentium 3 processor. They have worked for the longest time. The only new things are the power supply, and the Pentium 3. Now all of the sudden, the monitor will not turn on. The Video card is internal, and the monitor just sity in standby state.

    Is it a case of the monitor sitting in standby, or is the real cause the computer not booting up?

    When you think the computer is running, does the Caps Lock key toggle the light on and off on the keyboard? (if not, the computer is not running)

    Does the computer beep once when booting up?

    Well, the computer sounds like it is turning on, but no it doesn't beep, and the capslock doesn't come on. All of the lights on the keyboard flash, and then turn off. I called a local computer place, and they claimed that the computer is not communicating with my video card.
