My monitor shutsdown automatically when i power up my pc. I can hear the Harddrive working
but monitor power light goes from green to yellow/orange indicating it is shut down. it would work
after shutting down pc and restarting it (an average of 6 times befor monitor would stay in power up mode) but now it just wont power up. I have tried the following:
 
1. removed the cable to see if monitor is operational and it is
2. removed the video card and reinserted
3. replaced the video card
4. bought a new monitor
 
The pc is a dimension desktop bought in 2001. windows me operating sys.
Anyone have similar problems or ideas on how to solve please let me know.
thanks
