Re: My computer turns on but the moniter wont
Hi again Hit F8 on start-up, you will see a sub menu pop up, choose safe mode and hit enter, if it boots into windows safe mode (don't choose system restore) go into device manager and uninstall the graphics drivers and restart the machine, the machine should now boot up and re-install the graphics drivers itself, it may ask to be restarted again. Any more problems post back

The manual for your speakers can be found at http://www.logitech.com/repository/1411/pdf/27251.1.0.pdf. The Speakers should be conected to your computer as opposed to the moniter. Disconect the small wire from the moniter to the computer and insert the plug from the speakers where it came from.
well if it wont display anything that means the chipset has been damaged somehow my hp pavilion did the same thing and i had to buy a new graphics card try opening up the computer and have a look if you see heat sinks in a square without a fan that will be the chipset smell it if it smells like burnt plastic it needs replacing
try taking the ram chip out then see if thats the prob by turning on the computer without it if its not, try unhooking the cd drive and then try turning on the computer if thats not it then try unhooking the hard drive and check if thats it one of those should be the problem i had the same prob but i messed with the ram chips and it worked i just took it out started it up and it worked if thats the prob just start it up then shut it down and put the ram chip back in and it should be fine
If you have an expansion slot filled with a video card, remove the video card (provided you have onboard video connector as well) then try to reboot. I just went through similar issues with an GForce video card, it went bad, but the machine appeared to boot althugh I couldn't see the screen. Removed the card & it came up using minimal VGA drivers provide with WinXP.
Obviously you cannot check the video driver if you're not booting up...and seeing the screen.
Find a buddy with a regular monitor and hook it up and try to boot. Dell monitors sometimes require their propietary drivers, so write down the model when you take your pc to a friend's place, and DL the driver and install it (provided you got it to boot up)
and download and install, then run the superantispy free edition to remove any nasties the security program you have has not caught.
restart the pc. if the problem is not resolved, you may need to re-install the video driver software from ati (if you don't have the cd) at
