I have inherited a HP Evo mini tower. The systems have been wiped clean, which is OK with me. When I tried to reboot to clean install, the moniter does not recognise the tower and remains balnk. I have haave tried to reset CMOS, have disconnected all drives to reduce conflict, yet i expected to see some indiocation that the CMOS has kicked in...nothing. Power is getting through to the MoBO, fans etc are working, LEDs are lighting up but that is a far as I am able to get.
I can go no further until I can get the monitor to work. I have tried three different monitors and the results for all three is the same.

what tower? model, the monitor has nothing to do with power and dead fans in the tower.
'Sounds, (and silent to) means the PLUS in the PC is dead.
all things can be repaired, that is what technicians do.
here is the chain of events, ! to get noise (fans)
power in the wall 120vac , usa
power to the PSU,
the power button goes to the MOBO, and standby power is there
now and pushing said button the MOBO commands the PSU on
if the PSU is happy (PWROK) thinks PSU IS safe the PSU tells the PC its ok, and power stays up.
and fans run.
so my guess bad PSU, its easy to test with anyf $10 voltmeter,
make sure the cable conenting to the monitor of the computer and the tower is proerprly plug in ..Try to remve the cable clean both ends of the cable make sure its clean .Clean also the ports on the monitor and on the tower thentyr again .In case still nothing happens replaced the cable first but incase it hapens probably is on the MObo of your computer thanks Hope it help

Sorry to hear you're having problems. As simple as it sounds - remove the cover and blow out the system. I hear that Best Buy and Staples are giving free check ups. I would check with them for the freebee and not tell them it isn't booting. Just an idea - sneaky in a way but I have had pc's not boot and them after a cleaning boot right up. This isn't a permanent fix you understand.
I went to HP.com/Support, typed Compaq Evo D51s into the search bar, and it came up with the page, for the Compaq Evo 300s Convertible Mini-Tower. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Home.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=96281&submit.y=8&submit.x=10&lang=en&cc=us&y=7&x=7

You have loosing problem. 1. First of all check all the cable connection for loosing in your CPU. 2. Second re-insert your RAM after cleaning. 3. Check your power cable for loosing. 4. I am Hundred percent sure, your RAM is loose. Just unplug and replug your RAM after cleaning. 5. Hard Disk cable may be loose or SMPS cables are loose.
Try these steps. There is no hardware problem in your system.
