    Help needed! LCD monitor "No Sync" upon WindowsXP startup!

    Someone pls help me on this one...
    Everything was running fine until one day i unplugged the monitor cable from the graphics card to try out the TV-out S-video port on my TV set. After that i plugged the monitor cable back in and tried to start windows, everything went as per normal until it enters WinXP's wait screen, right about when you hear the startup tone, then the monitor just auto shutoffs and goes into standy mode (orange led). I tried turning on the monitor again and it shows "No Sync".
    What could be the problem?

    My system specs:
    P4 2.4
    512mb DDR
    Gigabyte 845PE
    EIZO LCD Flatscan L355
    Xelo MX440 SE
    Windows XP

    If you checked your S-video out, chances are the GF-MX4 is still looking for your TV and not your monitor. I've never used twinview or whatever nVidia calls it, so you may just want to try to investigate the answer when running in TV mode. Look at the advanced video card settings. I know with ATI, you can turn off unused monitors to save VC resources, maybe this is what you have done inadvertently.
    Give what you cannot keep to gain what you cannot lose.
