monitor not active on system start up

Here's the story,

My hard drive became faulty so I replace it, on reboot my bios showed that I had lost 128 mb of memory - I removed 1 128mb memory dimm from the slot and my system would start but no output to the display.

I replace the good 128mb of memory but I still had the same issue. I bought brand new memory that is the same and I still have this problem - Have I blown the motherboard?

please help

Re: monitor not active on system start up

Try rebooting into safe mode (or vga mode) If you then have a display, go into display properties and on the settings tab set it to 600 x 800 and reboot. You should then be able to reset the display to what you like
If at first you don't succeed, you must be installing Windows
