i have just put a fan control and optical mouse on my system. when i booted up everything was fine until the end of the XP loading screen, where my desktop should apear, instead the monitor goes onto standby. i thought it was just the monitor (as it is quite old) but i tried another one and the same thing happened. i removed the optical mouse and then reset bios (took battery out) also checked that graphix card was in properly etc. but cant figure it out, anyone got any ideas? oh and the desktop shows up on a tv using the tv-out on my graphix card, just not very well as it was a portable tv.
