    I failed to mention that the monitor is working fine I tested it on another computer. And the RAM I used was the same RAM that was in it, I just tried putting it in the other RAM slot, someone suggested that I should try that.

    The cable connects to a graphics card, not directly to the motherboard. I have checked the monitor and it works.

    I have been trying to locate a system to install that video card into, I just don't have another desktop handy. When I plug the monitor into the back of that computer the LED stays orange, indicating that the monitor is in "standby" mode, whend the monitor is active the LED turns "green". I'm looking for someone willing to let me use their computer in order to diagnose mine. Thank You for your input.

    Ok. Just drop me a comment to let me know the result. I will assist you. Anyways, you have an on board VGA port of your motherboard, right? Is it still working? If it is, you can test it there. Connect it directly on your VGA port of your motherboard first so you won't have difficulty to find another pc to work on it.

    Try to insert your graphics card to the other computer's graphics card slot first. Make sure the other motherboard slot has the same type of graphics card used.

    Where is your VGA cable connected? Is it on your on board VGA of your motherboard or you are using Graphics card?

    Hi, that's not a memory card problem. Where is your VGA cable connected? Is it on your on board VGA of your motherboard or you are using Graphics card?

Have you changed out the mother board? It could be the processer or the ram is not the right kind.

Blank screen, no signal to monitor, no HD light, no mouse light, no keyboard lights, no beep.

maybe it could be a frayed/broken wire leading to the visual/sound parts. if not then bring it to tech support and have them look at it

My p c tower was turned over now it will not work

First check your cables. Are all the internal cables tight (especially the ones connected to the hard drive)? If this computer has SATA connections, try moving the SATA connector to a different port on the computer. If all of these fail, try a different cable (a new one or removed the one from the optical (DVD) drive if it is the same as the hard drive). If this fails it is more than likely you have had a hard drive crash and will have to purchase a new hard drive. Keep in mind the new hard drive will be completely blank. You will have to reinstall your OS and software.

System is on but the screen is blank,screen comes up advices me to press f1 or f2 for set up no mater what I choose next screen is just blank.

A blank screen without error messages is an indication of missing parts in the system unit. Or, the operating system has been erased. Verify from the system unit an already existing hard disk storage drive. An intension to change to another would require a new operating system to be installed.

Computer monitor don't work at all.

So basically your monitor's power supply system died.
Nothing much a non-technician could do about it.
Get it repaired, if under warranty, get a replacement before the coverage duration expires.

Computer monitor is blank. No signal is received at any time. Currently using motherboard VGA port. I tried 2 different monitors and 2 different VGA cables. I then installed a new graphics card but still...

Disconnect all PCI Cards and unplug power to all Drives then reboot your computer using the motherboard VGA port to see if the monitor will POST. If you still have a blank screen you most likely have a bad motherboard.

Dead pc

try to remove all external device connected to your computer. just leave the keyboad, mouse and monitor connected.
restart computer.
if still a blank screen
remove everything connected to your computer (mouse kyeboard and monitor) restart if nothing happens
open your computer and remove all devices (hard drive, optical drives, memory... restart,,, you should be hearing beeping sounds indicating motherboard is looking for memory. try putting back 1 memory at a time and checking all mem slot. to identify if one of the memory could be causing the blank screen. if both memory will not work try to use known good working memory. if you dont get to hear the beeping sound using a known good working memory. your memory is the problem.
give me more info
