Hello, earlier this week i purchased a barebones kit from tigerdirect.com, this one to be exact: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1336887&Sku=B69-0454 This is my first barebones kit and first time assembling a computer, though I pretty much knew how to do everything. After getting it assembled, I plugged it in, hooked it up to my parents PC monitor since I do not have one of my own at the moment. I turned it on and the monitor would come on for a second or two with a lit up black screen then go into sleep/stand by mode. I've checked my wiring several times now, everything is as it should be. The computer seems to turn on, the LEDs work, the dvd drive works, the CPU fan runs. but the monitor will not come out of standby mode. I'm currently using the monitor on my parents PC and it is working fine. I was hoping some one here may be able to give me some insight into what the problem maybe. As of right now I dont have an extra monitor to test with. Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.
