Try it with another PC as a stand alone monitor, if it still does not work, then read on.
Check the fuse in the inverter for less than one Ohm as shown on my albums, also check the caps, transistors, solder joints.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

How can I get the SP-1 service pack from MS to load?


Go to this link and save the file:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/thankyou.aspx?familyId=b0c7136d-5ebb-413b-89c9-cb3d06d12674&displayLang=en

If you can not download it from the Vista computer, try to download it from a friend's computer and save it to a thumb drive or burn it to a CD. This is for the 32-bit Vista Operating system. If you are running the 64-bit OS (don't just go by your Processor that is 64-bit, but your actual Windows Vista operating system), then go to this link for the 64-bit version:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/thankyou.aspx?familyId=874a414b-32b2-41cc-bd8b-d71eda5ec07c&displayLang=en


Hope this does the trick!

32 bit program to 64 bit opperating system


From the Autocad webiste:
System Requirements AutoCAD® Civil and AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2009 Recommended System Requirements Recommended configuration (excluding server components used with project management capabilities):
  • Intel® Pentium® 4 (3 GHz or higher); AMD Athlon™; multiple processors supported, dual-core supported
  • 32-bit only: Microsoft® Windows Vista® Ultimate/Business/Enterprise, Microsoft® Windows XP (SP2)
Note: Windows XP 64 and Windows Vista 64 are supported in 32-bit compatibility mode only.

Here's how you should be able to run it in compatibility mode:
1. Right click on the Autocad Icon in your start menu
2. click on Properties
3. click on the Compatibility tab at the top
4. check the box next to Compatibility Mode and select Vista 32 bit if it is given as an option.

I don't have Vista here, but that is how it works in XP and I did do a search and it appears to be the same in Vista.
