Re: monitor will not start
So, when the monitor is on, connected to the wall (not to the computer), there's absolutely no signal? no message on the screen? no colors moving? Have you tried with another power cable? You can try this test. Use the computer's cable to test if the problem is the monitor's cable.

Not sure what you are trying to do. If you are trying to convert 32 bit to 64 bit Apps, try going to manufacturers website to look for drivers.
Win 7 will actually find the best drivers for your devices.
Turn the computer off, unplug the power cord and open the case. Check the connectors running into the back of the drive. Make sure they're seated properly, as well as the slot on the motherboard the drive hooks into. If the BIOS still isn't seeing the drive after this, then there is either a failure with that slot on the motherboard or a failure with the drive itself. You can always take the drive out and test it in another desktop to make sure it's not your motherboard.
These models have known video card problems, so first thing connect an external monitor before booting - boot and see if the image on the external monitor stays on, if it's fine on the external monitor then the LCD panel might be defective, otherwise if you see blurred / distorted image on the external display it's the VGA card. which means you should contact warranty (if you still have) because the mainboard needs servicing / replacement.
If you turn it on and there is no sound of a fan running or the hard drive spinning up, then you will be needing a new power supply. If you hear the fans running but there is no signal on the monitor, you might have a different hardware problem. In that case, open the case and remove all of the connections to the hard drive and CD. Leave only the cpu and memory connected. Then try to start it. If you have no luck, try to use a different monitor. If still no luck your motherboard is bad or the CPU is bad.
Hi. the mother board seems to be having some initialization issues during boot up. this is common when the mother board is failing. i would check to make sure the battery on this board is working. if it is, the board my be ruined. power board seems to be fine. please rate and god bless.
You would probably do right to reinstall Windows. The bios handed off to Windows long before the splash screen comes up. It is probably a faulty driver or corrupt registry entry. If it was me I would reload Windows
