Default Power Flickers and Monitor doesn't show on.

Ok, i cleaned out my computer and then when i reasembled everything something happend. I plugged everything back into the computer and then i turned it on. For about 30 seconds everything was fine but i didn't notice the monitor wasn't going on. After 30 seconds the power starting flickering on and off. The monitor still wasn't going on, does anyone know what could possibly be the problem. PLEASE HELP ME

Make sure everything is seated properly. It sound like your video card might not be seated right. Take it out and make sure its fully in the AGP slot ( dont be afraid to put some pressure on it to make sure its in right ).

You mean that the little light that shows there is power to the monitor is flickering? If so, the only thing I could think of would be the power cable to the monitor.
