Hi Rachel,
The old monitor was set to a resoloution that is higher then you current monitor can handle. This is normally the case when changing from a CRT to an LCD

Try this:
Unplug the video cable from the back of your computer.
Start the computer and wait for about 2 minutes.
Press the power button on the front of the computer just once. This will **** it back down safely again.
Plug the video cable back in, then restart the computer with the monitor turned on.

If this dosn't work then try this:

  1. Turn the computer on (have the monitor already powered up)
  2. When the computers bios/splash page goes away begin to press F8
  3. You should get a Windows Startup options page.
  4. If you see the WIndows Logo you normally see when it loads, just hit the reset button and try again.
  5. In the Windows Startup page, select Safe Mode and press enter twice
  6. Windows will now load.
  7. On the desktop right click anywhere there is nothing.
  8. Select Display Properties, a new window will open
  9. Select the last tab at the top of the window (properties)
  10. You will see a slider on the left side, move it to 800x600, select apply, then close the box.
  11. Restart Windows.
If that fails, then please post back and we can try something else.

It will be video cable or related.

Responding to prior post,
Fuses have nothing to do with the video proper.
If you have a message on the screen, which says the monitor is basically working or saying the fuses and inverter is working.

That message appears with lack of video, so it can be the cable itself, possibly the video card on the computer.

The first thing you should do is change the monitor for another known working monitor to make sure it is the monitor that is faulty and not the video output of your computer.
