Re: 24" DOA Soyo Monitor
What size monitor were you using before? If you were using a smaller monitor and everything was fine maybe this new monitor is out of range for the graphics card. I've found that not all graphics cards, especially older ones, will not run a monitor as large as 24 inches. If you can, connect this new 24 inch monitor to a computer with a more powerful graphics card. If it works then you will know that the problem is with your computer. Also connect your old monitor and go into control panel and see what range and resolution your graphics card will support. You may need a more powerful card to run the new monitor.

this can be your computer issue not monitor try connect to other monitor and make sure your computer is working fine ,you can check all the lights on the computer are on and getting no beeps sounds usually you will hear a single beep when PC is booting well
You have changed the resolution or refresh rate to a value that the monitor cannot support. This can be a problem to reset since you cannot see the monitor to correct the issue. Reboot into SAFE MODE (F8) key and change the resolution to a value that the monitor can support.
First check the connections, by upplugind the cord connecting it to your PC(on both ends if able). Then if still having issues try the monitor on another computer if you can. If the issue is only when connected to your computer then it is an issue with your video card and not the monitor. if the issue stays with the monitor no matter what computer you plug it into then the problem is with the monitor itself. If the cable that connects it can come off the monitor you can try a new cable but likely the monitor will need to be replaced at that point.
It is highly unlikely a Pentium 3 motherboard is available let alone a SOYO P3 motherboard.
Motherboards and desktop cases have standard mounting holes, I would suggest you buy a late model motherboard that suit your requirements and mount it in your desktop case. You need to be sure the ATX power supply is adequate power output.
Better still just buy a new computer, you don't need a buy a new monitor.
You can reuse the old hard disk and put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external hard drive.
If you hear the windows chime during bootup then it will be a video problem. 1.) Swap the power cord from the computer to the monitor and vice versa 2.) If computer still working then try a different monitor, 3.) Replace the video card. Hope this helps, Best Regards, -md
Try disconnecting your keyboard and switching the computer on again and see if the monitor comes on properly. If it does you have your problem. Then power down and connect keyboard back up. If it doesnt work then you may have to change the keyboard.
