-Does your system POST?
-Can you see the system POST on screen?
-Can you see the loading windows screen?


-Swap monitors with another one in the house.
-Plug your AIW into your TV. Out signal may perhaps be getting sent to TV OUT.
-Try swapping video cards to rule out any monitor problems.
-Try running in safe mode to rule out or limit driver problems.
-If your system isn't posting, try resetting the CMOS.

Hope you figure out your problem, and WELCOME TO THE FORUMS!!!

My system is actually posting but I cant see any of it on the screen when im using DVI. I dont see the windows startup either, only when it goes into windows so i start seeing things. I would try and swap around but i dont have any other DVI monitors.
Any ideas with my specific monitor or anything?
