The monitor just wouldn't turn on from the sleep mode.....

My monitor seems to be ravelling with an unsual problem right after the item was plugged in to use for the first time. The monitor just simply stays on the sleep mode, regardless of the CPU being on.I cannot view anything. All I can see on the screen is "MONITOR GOING TO SLEEP". WHat seems to be the problem? Its a brand new monitor..

To amplify ~1 The basic computer motherboard has 'On board Graphics'- that is a graphics ability built into the system This is the 3x5 pin blue socket grouped with the USB PS2 and other sockets in a common panel under the Power Inlet. If the machine has an additional Graphics card this will be the same 3x5 socket duplicated here with a another socket. So try both. You could also check the BIOS settings Bios setting are achieved by pressing delete[ or another key - this will be shown which in the start screen] on the computer as soon as you switch on, where by a crude blue/yellow screen will come up. But you will need the hand book to hand to delve further, Rest assure I do not think it is a Monitor problem- but lack of signal from the computer.

A little more info pleas. The single most common cause of this particular problem is the monitor being plugged in to an inactive VGA socket. Most manufacturers build several models of computer based on the same base components, you will often find that your computer has both a reasonably powerful graphics card plugged in to a socket on the motherboard and a less powerful, basic graphics chip built in to the motherboard that is disabled. The reason for this is that the base model of your computer is only supplied with the basic graphics chip but if you paid for a more powerful model a more powerful graphics card was supplied that disables the basic chip. have a look at the back of your computer (the box you described as the CPU) and see if you have 2 blue sockets with 3 rows of pinholes in them, if you do your monitor needs to be plugged in to the one that is higher up and sitting horizontally. If not message back.

    If you've checked that it's in the correct socket and you're still having the same problem, repeatedly tap the F8 key from the moment you tern the computer on, with any luck you'll see a list of white text including the option for "VGA Mode only", use the arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight it and press the return key. This will start Windows (assuming you're using Windows) in a basic display mode but if you give it a few moments Windows should ask you if you want it to try and automatically adjust your display settings. Obviously Windows is a poor quality product and so often fails to set the correct display settings, if the picture is not clear and sharp; Click Start, click Control Panel and click Display (or right click on an empty part of your desktop and select Properties) then under the Settings tab move under Screen resolution, drag the slider bar until the resolution matches that in the manual.
    Try to avoid accessing the BIOS unless you are familiar with it or you have no other choice, unless you know your way around your computer's BIOS and understand all the options you can easily end up causing more problems than you solve.
    Also, may computer OEM's (manufacturers) such as HP, Packard Bell, Compaq Etc. use a proprietary BIOS that offers very few useful options unless you know how to access the engineers override.
