Ok, firstly do you see the bios screen at start up before windows starts?

If you do, try repeatedly pushing F8 during the bios screen to go to the advanced boot menu and try booting to safe mode. If you can boot to this then its a driver problem.

If not is the pc booting up? Can you hear the fans and hard drive going, is the hard drive light flashing etc?

If your sure the pc is starting correctly, you need to establish if your using built in graphics or an extended graphics card. Easy way to tell is if your monitor connector on the back of the pc is fairly low in one of the horizontal slots then it's an extended graphics card.

If it is, then unplug the pc and open the side or back, lay it on its side and check that it is seated in the slot correctly, even better remove it and reseat it, push firmly but not too hard, they can be a bit fiddly. Sometimes the cards or CPU's can creep out of the slot due to repeated heating up and cooling down, or can be jogged during transit etc.

If its onboard graphics, ie your monitor connector is higher up in amongst the other connectors etc then you will have to buy an extended graphics card PCI, PCIe or VGA as its difficult to fix onboard faults without replacing the whole motherboard.

Let me know how you get on.

Vidieo input 1 d-sub no singal

sounds like you may have the digital plug attachment to monitor/pc and your pc is not using digital or the settings on monitor is digital but you pc is analog. sometimes the pc cannot send the correct digital signal so you must use the analog plug cord(serial) a blue plug with a odd shape, one end wider than the other. i seem to remember the message you displayed coming up when a friend tried to connect digitally to his monitor but his pc could only send an analog signal so he had to use the other plug hook up. hope that this makes sense.
your monitor may be too new for your pc or vise versa.

I CAN SEE THE CPU FAN RUNNING, but i cannot see anything on my monitor,i mean my monitor is still in sleep mode

1) If the monitor has a removable monitor cable, and you have a Known to be good one to use for a test unit, try it. If it isn't removable, try another Known to be good working monitor.

2) If the monitor cable, and the monitor proves to be good, the next thing to suspect would be bad graphics.
Bad Integrated graphics on the motherboard, or if a graphics card is used, a bad graphics card.

3) I suspect it is a bad Power Supply. An issue that comes up so much, that I would skip 1 and 2 above, and check the Power Supply.

A) ALL of the LED lights, mumba_mwaba, use less than 1 Watt of power when in use.

B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

C) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.
(Older processors such as a Pentium II for example use less)

Enough power to light LED lights, and spin fans, (Or spin a few times and stop), but Not enough power to turn the Processor on.

This is why you may see LED lights lit, and fans spinning, but the computer isn't working.
The computer isn't sending a video signal to the monitor.
No Signal.

Do you have a KNOWN to be good, compatible Power Supply to use for a test unit?
May sound far fetched, but perhaps there is someone who has upgraded to a better computer, and has a computer they're not using, and you could borrow the Power Supply for a test unit.

No Monitor signal and no ethernet light on modem

please test the power source that the computer is plugged into and confirm it is working with a lamp or something.
If power source is confirmed working and the computer is plugged in and it is turned on and there is still no signal to the monitor and the ethernet lights are not on when the cable is plugged into it. Also check that all cables from the monitor to the computer are connected properly and secure. if the above has been done and still no signal then there are some Possible Causes
1. Mother Board failure (video card on motherboard is defective)
2. Monitor Failure (computer is sending video signal but monitor can not process it)
3. Video Card failure (if the video card is not designed into the motherboard)

Troubleshooting and repair
See if you can get access to another monitor to test the computer with to see if it sends he video signal ok to that monitor. If you can not get access to one then the only option is to get a video card and either you can install it yourself, or have it installed at a repair station.
If you purchase the card and install it yourself most stores will let you return the cards if they do not work or they are not usable. If you do go that route just make sure to ask about return policies prior to trying it.

I would really consider replacing the video card first you can get them from 30.00 and up and there is ony a few screw to remove to install them. Most of the video card manufactures also have tech support for helping people with the installations of the cards.

I would not worry about the lights on the modem or network card until the monitor issue is resolved so you can then see if it is indeed making a connection to the internet.

No signal on monitor

If there's no signal on monitor. Try to check the cables connected to your monitor. To isolate the issue, test that cable to a different monitor, or test that monitor to a different computer using a different monitor. By doing those things I mentioned above, you would be able to determine the root cause of the problem "no signal on monitor".
