    Try to boot the system in "safe mode". If you get to display your desktop then, it could be that the monitor frequency is set too high.
    That would cause the monitor to turn itself off during the normal startup.
    If in safe mode everything works well, then set the monitor frequency to a lower setting, which is supported by your monitor.

    Hope it helps.
    Why is it drug addicts and computer afficionados are both called users?

    60 Hz is the lowest you want to go. That's pretty much where you want to stay. Try changing the resolution to 800x600 or 640x480 and the color depth to 256 colors. Also see if there's a newer video driver out for your video adapter.
