    Look in the motherboard manual, and see how you clear the cmos. It will be a jumper that you change on the motherboard, then power up the PC (nothing will happen) then change back. This will load the default BIOS settings.

    ok.I worked out whats causing the problem.

    The bios controled display management system(dpms)

    this feature lets the bios control the video display card, and i have inadvertently selected the vh sync +blank option.

    i tried to clear the cmos but it didnt work, maybe i didnt do it right(anyone with this board that can give me a walk through).

    anyone had a prob like this b4.

    :rolleyes: :confused: :rolleyes: :(
