Check that it is plugged into your PC correctly.
Check that there are no bent pins on the monitor plug.

can i do this why it is switched on, do i put the cd that came with it in or is that just the manual?

Does your PC have integral graphics (on the motherboard) or a separate graphics card? You can usually tell this from the position of the monitor socket on the back of the PC.
Does your PCbase unti power up, ie. are there any lights, sounds of fans running, hard drives working, etc?

Ow! My ears! Diddi - Capitals are the equivalent of shouting! Have pity <g>

Try the CD - it may have a driver for that monitor.

Hope this helps.
