    Either the motherboard, video card (if used) or the processor is suspect.

    Do you hear any beeps when you power up the computer?

Lenovo monitor

Try connecting the monitor to another computer. This will tell you if the monitor has gone bad or if the video controller on your computer has failed. If you have a spare cable, try replacing it. Otherwise see if the monitor is under warranty.
If the monitor is okay, check for any audible beeps coming from the computer. The motherboard manufacturer has a BIOS beep code that will tell you if the video controller is bad. Check the power supply, ram slots, etc. Gather more info and post another question regarding the PC.

Hdd power problem


Check your HDD with HDD monitor utility to see if it's ok. You can try this one:
If your HDD has bad SMART or power controller or smth like that - then you definitely need to replace HDD.
Also issue may be caused by your PC power supply or motherboard power controller. If HDD monitor shows that your hard drive is "alive", then try to "hang" your HDD to another power cord from your PC power supply and try to connect to other IDE/SATA port on your motherboard.

Also I'd suggest you to try your HDD on any other PC.

Screen is blurred. removed and attached a different monitor and is the same. It is not the monitor

There are four things you can check for a blurred monitor:
1. The monitor itself (you eliminated that one) 2. The monitor cable and it's connection (make sure the cable is connected well on both ends, replace it if you can) 3. Video card driver (new drivers are free from the manufacturer's website 4. Video card (the card itself might be bad)

Mine similar except the blue light stays on ,monitor goes black

Have you tested the monitor? The monitor could be faulty. Try hooking up the computer to another monitor or another computer up to that monitor if possible. If the monitor is testing good then make sure all USB devices are disconnected and try to boot again. Then open the case and blow out any dust. Check the motherboard screws are tight. If the screws holding the motherboard to the case are loose it can cause a grounding issue. Then swap out the power supply with a working one and see if that fixes it. Disconnect hardware one at a time and re-boot. One of the,harddrive,ect could be faulty. Make sure the video card is fully seated and test the card in another working computer or test a working card in that computer. If it has on-board video then install a video card if available and see if it works. If none of these things work then the board is bad and needs replacement.

Cpu /monitor

Hi, Sounds like video card problem. Try removing, cleaning the gold contacts and re-installing to the slot. If your PC uses an on-board video that shares with the memory, then you have to remove your memory and clean the gold contacts then re-insert back and try again. If cleaning, re-inserting/re-seating does not solve the problem, then perhaps replacement is required. Hope this be of some help/idea. post back how things turned up or should you need further information. good luck and kind regards.
