When I switch the computer on, a message: ATTENTION NO VIDEO INPUT floats around a black screen and I cannot get anything past this despite switching it off and on repeatedly. This first started while on a banking site and the screen went blank and after a while came back on and then blanked out again and then I got this message. I have checked all the cables and everything seems to be plugged in properly.
I am using Windows XP (well, I was!!)

This is most likely because your computer is trying to display a screen resolution higher then tht monitor can support. Turn your PC on, and press F8 until you see a black and white menu. Select safe mode. Run safe mode and when windows loads, goto your control panel. Select Display and navigate to the resolution / settings tab. The screen resolution should be set to 1440 x 900 for this monitor to display video correctly. If you need more detailed information on where to find the display resolution settings in windows I will need the name of the OS you are running... XP, Vista, Win 7 etc.. Regards,Chris
Start your Windows in Safe Mode (pressing F8) during boot process and adjust your Display Settings to a lower resolution.... say 1024 x 768. Once fixed, you can play around again increasing the resolution a notch at a time. Fix ya!
When your computer is starting up, hit F8 and you'll see the safe mode, safe mode with networking, etc. screen...You should see a choice that says "enable vga mode". Select that and windows will start and the os will select a screen resolution for you. After that, everything will work fine...I hope.
