    Anyone Know Why?I turn my PC off every night. I live in a windy area
    with a lot of dead trees hanging over the power lines.

    MoBo K7AMA AMD Duron.
    Monitor is 5 yrs old 14" Samsung.

    A brown out took out the power supply in Jan.
    Replaced it with a 300w 24 pin supply w/ a 20-pin adapter.
    The slot for the SVGA card died around that time. (Card is ok but is
    NFG in this machine, causes 8 beep tones at boot up & no pic)
    I pulled a video card from a P1 win98 machine, which uses a normal
    slot. That works, but.....

    Now when I boot up the system, the monitor stays in standby mode. There

    is no restart function anymore, so I have no recourse but to power down

    at the surge protector power strip. I do this before Windows can load.
    I wait a few secs then turn the system on and then the monitor wakes up

    and i can load Windows XP. Switching slots on the board to change IRQ
    did nothing.

    Just go for one with the same or same-brand chipset to avoid difficulties
    with booting windows after the change.
