Question about Computers & Internet
HP Pavillion tx1000 blank display, (black) nothing.
Also I hear no beep when starting up but I can hear fans running.
This may not be the monitor's fault, it should flash a front panel LED when power is applied and most monitors will now flash a message if they are healthy but have no input signal.
Watch if your keyboard lights flash at power on and then the hard drive light on the system box to see if the computer is even booting.
If the system seems dead, you may have to open the case (only a few screws hold one side) and, with the power off, ground yourself on any bare metal you see and then pop the memory boards loose and then reseat them, trace each plug from the power supply (normally a silver box into which the AC is plugged in the back) to its end and if connected, disconnect and then reseat the plug.
If you have an accumulation of dust bunnies, blow them out and if any fans are carrying a bunch of dust, use a clean paint brush to free the blades a bit. I don't recommend using a vacuum since they can produce a ton of static charge and that can be death to low-level ICs.
I generally will reconnect everything external to the system box and turn on the power before reattaching the side panel removed for access; that gives you a chance to check if the CPU fan is running and any others that might not be visible once the case is buttoned up.
