Default Monitor Going Into Standby??


When I turn my pc on, my monitor light comes on for around 2 seconds, then there is a faint clicking sound and the monitor light flashes on and off, i.e. standby mode.

The windows boot up works fine, as if I leave it long enough, I can shut the computer down normally ('windows key', 'u', 'u') and it shuts down. The monitor must be getting power as the light is there and few a few fleeting seconds, it actually seems to work, then CLICK standby and much irritation.

I can't get into safe mode, as the monitor cuts to standby after a few seconds, seemingly regardless of the circumstances. So I can't check the refresh rate or anything.

I have not recently added any hardware.

This has been doing this since like, dinner time yesterday. I've tried sooo much to sort it out and it just doesn't want to know.
Please you kind people, can you offer any assistance? Am I looking at buying a new monitor?

Reseat the video card and the memory. Try it on another monitor.
