I set up a PC that had been given to a friends sister but on switching on the HP TFT monitor just displays 'Going to sleep' then goes off. ?

Go into Control Panel, Power Options and set Power schemes to Always on, and the other three options all to Never.

Your monitor is not receiving the signal from the graphics card. Disconnect and reconnect the monitor cable, if that doesn't help, try a known good cable. If still no good, try another monitor. If still no good it may mean your graphics card is faulty.
