Blank monitor on startup

  24seven 13:04 31 Mar 03

Hi guys,

I have been given a Tiny PC base unit which was thought to be OK. but on powering it up the monitor stays black.
It is not the original monitor but something is getting to the montor as the standby light goes from orange to green.
There are no unusual beeps fron the tower just the single beep on switching on.
Also the fan is running.
Have tried pressing DEL or F2 or F8 on startup but no joy.

Any Ideas???

make sure the monitor cable is plugged in correctly, if it is then try a different monitor. also if its a agp or pci graphics card make sure it is firmly in its slot.
