I bought my son a new monitor for his birthday. It will only boot up in Safe Mode with his pc. It works just fine with mine, which is newer. On his, it will briefly light up, with the beep, and then the screen just stays black. The blue power light is on, which means that that it is connected to the pc, but it continues to stay black. What is the problem? Before I bought the new monitor, he was using an old Vizio TV for his monitor and it worked. The new monitor is an Asus VE208.
