Default monitor problems Please help!

Ok yesterday I sleeved my power supplies cables(which was a pain in the ***). But then when I get done and have everything hooked up, I go to turn on my copmuter. Well it turns on but what happens is that the monitor dosent wake up. Like it is on but the power light is oarnge. I cant figure it out. My video card is hooked up. At first i though maybe when I didnt put the molex connectors back on right after I sleeved them. Well I used some power cables that I knew were working because they were powering my fans. Well still nothing happens. Any ideas?

What PSU do you have?

Its probally that has gone, or it may be dieing and not supplying enough amps.

Any other cables not plugged in? 12v? etc.

edit:When you took off the molex ends, did you put them back the right way round? Do you have the motherboard speaker connected?

It isnt the powersupply because it is powering everything fine. I put the molexs on right im am just not sure if the two black ones int he middle are in right order. And yes I have checked to make sure all the cables are plugged in all the way.
