Do you get a blinking light on your monitor, as if it were waiting for a signal? If so, check your RAM, too. I've had this problem before.

Desiboi, I said in my original post I tried a different one.
Skyhi, the monitor acts like it does when the computer is off. Orange light on the power button. When the computers on, its green

ALSO, this might be important. When the monitor plug that goes in the video card is plugged in, the light on the monitor is green. When it is unplugged, the light goes green and a "No signal; Check monitor plug?" or something to that extent, AKA no signal.

Ok, this is weird/frusterating. I removed one stick of Ram and nothing. Put it back in, took out the other. It WORKS! But I get a Drive Error. What could be causing this? Quite maddening.

Mandingo, did you read my post? I have tried it. Plus, I said I got it working, but it starts up weird.
