Question about Dell OptiPlex Computers & Internet
If the monitor display do not become bad early, it will display something about "Intel" with some word in bracket.... I hope I've give a good explanation of the problem
Seems like a video driver issue
power on your computer and when you see the Dell logo start tapping on the F8 key. keep tapping On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight the safe mode with networking option, and then press Enter.

tricky!! oh hi im Dyanne.. a totally unresponsive black screen can be th result of failure of th LCD or LCD inverter.( a specialized piece of electronics that energize th screen) to rule out th failure of th video display adapter or circuitry, try plugging in an external monitor..a standard pc monitor.. attached direct to th lappy. if it works, (as i susopect) th motherboard and video display are both working ok and its th LCD which is at fault. this can sometimes be repaired by a competent specialist. good luck xx

Download and install the correct driver for the monito as well as the deiver for your video card, if the video is onboard, you may need the motherboard and AGP driver as well.
You will probably need to boot in Safemode to do this.

Most likely an issue with the Video Card or Video driver.
* Boot to safe mode by tapping F8 while starting up the computer. Selected safe mode with the keyboard and hit enter. Login to your user account. You should see the words “Safe Mode” on all four corners,
* Open device manager – Right click “My Computer” – Select “Manage” – Selected device manager from the left. Under display driver, you should see your vide card listed. Right click on it and select “Disable”.
Now restart your computer and if this resolves the issue, then the vide card may be at fault. You could also try updating the video driver.
Do let me know if you get this far.

SOURCE: I hadn't turned my hp
1) There is a such thing as a bad Power Supply. New or not.
2) You may not have all required power cables plugged in.
Besides the ATX main power cable, there is also a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, that has to be plugged into the motherboard.
This is HP Support, and the Motherboard Specifications page,
I would like you to scroll down to the illustration of the motherboard.
To the left of VIA KM400A is a small square. To the top of the small square is printed ATX12V
This is where the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable plugs into.
(The motherboard chipset is the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.
The VIA KM400A chip is the Northbridge chip. Should be under an aluminum finned Heatsink)
I would also like you to clear CMOS Error codes.
Computer unplugged from power press the Power On button, and hold it in.
Hold it in for a count of 5 seconds. (And I mean at least 5)
Let go of the Power On button.
Do this procedure 2 more times.
This action will clear CMOS Error codes, and reset BIOS back to the factory default settings.
Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, then turn the computer on.
Be sure ALL power cables are plugged in, and plugged in tightly.
A) ATX main power cable. (20-pin ATX main power cable)
B) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable
C) All 4-pin standard Peripheral power cables.
1 is for the Harddrive.
1 is for the CD or DVD optical drive, ( Or 2 if more than 1 optical drive)
1 may be used in conjunction with an adapter cable, and used for power to a computer case fan.
3) Make sure the ram memory module/s are seated in tightly. (Module = 'Stick')
You may wish to clean the gold plated contact pins on each ram memory module.
The gold plated contact pins develop corrosion.
Computer unplugged, and you have followed Anti-Static Precautions, remove each ram memory module.
Use a pencil eraser to clean each contact 'strip'.
If you use an eraser on the end of a pencil, refrain from letting the metal band contact the contact pins.
Just takes a few strokes of the eraser on each contact pin.
After you have finished cleaning a contact strip it may look as though you have done nothing at all
I assure you that you have. Doesn't take much corrosion to make a bad contact.
Use air to remove the eraser dust before you reinstall the ram memory.
If air from a can of compressed air for computers is not available, air pressure from your mouth is sufficient.
If this doesn't solve the problem please post back in a Comment.
We will go on to test the various voltages coming out of the Power Supply.
(If a multimeter is not available an economical unit can be purchased. Most auto parts stores carry them, as well as a multitude of other stores. A $5 to $20 unit will do just fine.
The voltages involved are 3.3 Volts, 5 Volts, and 12 Volts.
ALL are DC voltage.
Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC )
