If you move your mouse, or hit enter or any key what happens?

It sounds like the computer isn't detecting your monitor. I still remember my old Gateway monitor say the same thing if the monitor gets disconnected "Power Saving Mode". Double check the monitor connections and make sure the video card is snug.

Try taking the modem off. If it works, go to the BIOs and make sure that the LANring doesn't interfere with something
