I just installed a new hard drive on my G4. Now the computer will not recognize my new monitor. When I boot the computer the green light comes on the monitor but then it goes into sleep mode. How can I fix this.
- Do you get a display if you remove the newly-installed drive?
- Did you make sure that you didn't jostle/loosen any component or cables while you were installing the drive? Recheck you cable connections, make sure all of your cards/RAM sticks are firmly seated, etc.
- You say that both the drive and the monitor are new; have you tried the monitor on another system to ensure that the monitor is functioning?
- Do you get any error beeps when the system boots? If so, how many?
