Setup is usually entered by pressing the delete button or F2 (or F1 .. it depends on your computer..) during the boot-up process.
However, as you say there's absolutely nothing on your monitor which you know works, suggests that the fault lies elsewhere. If there's nothing at all on your monitor it may be a failed video card/chip.
I take it that your computer actually powers up even though you can see nothing on the monitor?
If you can, try another video card in your computer. If the monitor then works, you know it is the old video card/chip at fault.
If, after trying a replacement video card and there's still nothing on the monitor, you'll have to suspect a motherboard fault.
Please try booting with your windows DVD and see if you screen loads, on that boot DVD you should see an option to repair install, try that. But if after booting to your DVD you see your screen come up, just try a regular restart again before doing a system repair.
White screens are caused by one of two things, either we have a bad power supply or a blown fuse on the lcd panel. To check the power supply section you can go to the site: www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm U can see pictures of what to look for. If you see any that look like the parts in the pictures replace them.
I hope this has been helpful
Good Luck & Thanks, Shiv
If your server came up without key board and monitor on last boot, you wont get anything by connecting monitor.
you have reboot the server by making user, input device=keyboard and output device=monitor
you can see this value by using eeprom command from os
you set this value
When you switch on the computer and monitor does the monitor power light illuminated? If not check the power cable, if the power light is on try connecting it to another computer, if it works on another computer then the fault is in your computer or a faulty video cable (try another video cable). If the monitor does not work then it is faulty, if it is OK then your computy is faulty.
If the fault is in your computer, you didn't exactly pinpoint the nature of your fault. Does the power light on your computer illuminated when you power up? Does your computer actually boot up, does it give and beep code (count the number of beeps - 7 beeps usually means video problems, depends upon the type of BIOS)? When your computer first boots up and you see POST information on the screen then nothing, it is most likely :- 1. The refresh rate of the video card has been set too high beyond the monitor's specification. 2. Video card configured with incompatible monitor.
If you computer fires up and the monitor is OK the you have a faulty graphics card, you need to replace it.
Suggestion 1: Try switching your Monitor's plug from one DVI to the other. This shouldn't do anything, because your graphic card should display the booting sequence on all connected monitors... however, doesn't hurt to try.
Suggestion 2: New graphic cards are quite a power-hungry monsters... are you sure your power supply is up to the task? Your current configuration could help in this regard + the make, model and rated Wattage of your PSU.
