For my mother's birthday, my father and i bought her a computer. I suggested that i build it, rather than spending extra money on [insert pre-built computer company name]. He agreed.
After plugging in everything, and doing some cable management, i start to install XP home. Installation goes smoothly. Computer boots up, gets to loading screen, but monitor says "Signal Not Found" before i get to the user log-in screen. From there, i took out the harddrive, put it in my computer, and installing the video card drivers. So far, so good.
I put the harddrive back into my mother's and boot up. It gets to the desktop this time, but after a few seconds, the screen goes blank, though the monitor is still on. So i restarted, and it gets past the loading screen, but before the log-in screen, it goes blank again.
It is repeatedly doing this, and i have no idea what the problem could be.
