    Hello guys,

    I just finished installing Windows 7 and my monitor is plugged in but the light is on standby. It doesn't seem to recognize it. I works fine on Vista but I cannot seem to get it working. Any help or suggestions?

    Regards,
    BloodedMayhem.

    does your bios screen show and stuff?
    did you try starting in safe mode?

    Some questions,

    Give us some specs on your computer especially the monitor type and manufacturer.

    Did you perform a "clean" install or an upgrade?

    Are you dual-booting?

    Since it's orange on startup, you see nothing at all, correct?

    Have you checked all connection to make sure they are firmly seated?

    I fixed it now. It just needed a restart although, I did that about 8 times with installing new software, I'm glad it's fixed now. Also, I see no update panel like Vista had, any thoughts on that?
