First you say your monitor doesn't come on,then you say you see a message,maybe you need some Martian input on this.
If we have a worst post poll i might select yours.

Check your graphics card and your VGA cable if that is what you are using.

Yeah, sounds like something to do with that. Probably the Card is not in right, or the RAM is not in right.

Do you know the Monitor is working? Cause it doesn't much make sense to say 'No power signal'
