    ok it seems that every thing loads just fine, because I can blindly log into the desktop after I give it time to load, then I just login and the startup jingle sounds but no picture input.

Sounds like your video card is bad. You will need to purchase a new one. On some machines there is 2 video connectors -like 1 on the motherboard and 1 other mounted in a slot just verify that you have tried both connectors if you have them before buying a new card.

NOTE: Usually the slot mounted video card will over-ride the motherboard video by default.

Good Luck!

Dear Frnd,

Lets from the bigening. Turn ON your Computer. if your CPU Machine's LED indicating that windows is booting, than Press the NUM Lock Key few times in Keyboard, if it is blinking & your monitor still not recieving any signal, then it is confirm that your PC's Mother Board have a problem with Video Output. you have to send it for repairing or purchase a new video card and install in your motherboard. it also work as the same as earliar.

When i power on my pc moniter not started hard disk light not blinking..


Are you powering on your computer and your monitor...

If your computer appears to boot, but nothing on your monitor...
Here's some tricks I would try. Something here, might help...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your monitor on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.
Good luck.

If your computer won't boot...
The hard drive, motherboard, or some other critical component may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. If you have files that you do not want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive. That way, at least you may not lose your files.
Then, you could try to do a Factory Restore or Reload on the computer, and if that works, copy your personal files back to your newly restored computer. Good luck.

My Dell Optiplex gx260 Pentium 4 Flat CPU doesn't Display anything, and Power light is Orange.. Please help me out


You say the power light is orange--I'm assuming that you mean the monitor.
This indicates the monitor is not receiving a signal from the computer.
Assuming that the computer actually powers up (fan runs, you can hear the hard drive being accessed, etc) then your problem lies in the video card.

If, on startup, you do see the BIOS info and maybe even the Windows splash screen before your monitor goes dark, then the problem lies in the video card drivers. In this case, starting in safe mode will work and allow you to download and install new drivers.

Computer will indicate power but power light keeps on flashing, no hard drive light, no fans or anything else, power light on screen, screen black


Your computer power supply has shut down with circuit protection. Look for equipment or leads that have shorted out.
Remove all the equipment until only the monitor is plugged in.
If this works restore the equipment one by one until you find the fault.
Try this order
monitor
fans
hard drives
If it does not work with just the monitor it is either a faulty power supply or a faulty motherboard.
The Power supply is a the cheapest one to buy, to find out which is faulty.

When turned on all i get is fans constantly running and nothing else was working fine up till then


Sometimes the best answers are the simplest. First, make sure the video monitor is switched ON, securely connected to the computer video port and the "brightness" control set to at least mid-point. Before focusing suspicion on the computer itself, try a different "known to be working" monitor AND CABLE. Failing all the above you should carefully observe a manual re-start of the computer noting the presence or absence of 1.) pilot or drive indicator lights on or flashing, 2.) A beep tone or series of beeps emanating from the computer ( one beep is good - more than one is an indication of trouble requiring a technician ). 3.) Fan(s) running. If you have lights, fans, and a beep but no video, ( not even a blinking cursor in the upper left of the screen ), replace the video or graphics card in the P.C. with one known to be working. This should solve the problem.

Monitor receives no signal, hard-disk light is on


You might need to change your AGP video card (the card where you attach your monitor cable). If a separate video card is not present, you might be getting your video directly from your mainboard. If the latter is the case, you can buy or borrow a PCI card with video port, insert it in a PCI slot in your mainboard and attach your monitor there.

Hello


What makes you think your hard drive has failed?
If you think your hard drive has failed you would get a message as your system started up. Something to the effect (can not find a bootable media type). If you have no display on your monitor but you see the lights on your PC lighting up & flashing. More likely you have a video issue. Pay close attention when you start your PC. Listen for a single beep as it starts up. Watch the green light on your monitor, see if it turn to the color amber.
Watch the front of you PC as well. Do you see any led's light up?

Black screen not booting


check both your power and video connections to the monitor, sounds more like a monitor power issue.
if the connections appear ok, but screen still blank, try connecting a known good working monitor from somewhere else and see if it works with your pc, if it does, your original monitor is faulty, if it doesn't, you have a pc video issue.
