Hp touchsmart 520 when i press the power button the blue light come on sound like it turning on but a blank black screen done this from new

Let it power on. If it plays the normal windows music then look very carefully at the screen. You may need a flash light. If you see a faint image then your inverter board or back light have burnt out. It will a small board 1 x 2 inches usually and have a small wire coming from the power supply and one going to the bottom or top of the screen.

When i try to boot my gateway desktop everything seems fine but all i get on the screen is black with a small line in left upper corner. there is no setup or bios of any kind. what should i do please help...

That is the sign that no bootloader is detected - the hard disk is completely corrupted. The only thing left is to reinstall Windows using the recovery cd that came with the pc.

Hp pavilion 760n when turned on it makes clicking sound for a while and stops the monitor screen is blank with only a curser flashing in the top left corner.

The clicking is coming from the hard disk - it has died - so the BIOS is signalling that the OS is missing - cursor flashing in the top left corner.
Replace the hard disk and reinstall Windows.

Video freezes up to vertical lines or blue or white screen

Clean the CPU cooler and everithing else from the dust!

Turn off,open the case, use air spray to clean.
(I use vacom cleaner and a small brush, but you risk your component if you do the same! I'm professional.)
