Question about Computers & Internet
If the screen is black, then there is no data going from the computer to the monitor. If this is the case, your computer may not be starting properly or you may need a new videocard.
If your computer is not starting properly, you can try re-seeding the ram (taking it out and putting it back in).
Note: if you have a white eraser, this would be a great time to clean off the gold leads on each stick. Use the eraser (as you would normally) on the leads to make sure they are nice and bright. Be careful not to touch the leads with your hands.
If you have a stand alone video card, try re-seeding it just like the RAM. You can also clean off it's leads in the same way as the RAM.
The only other thing it could be is a dead motherboard. To check for this, remove the ram and turn the computer on. If it beeps, it's working and something is wrong with either the ram or graphics card. If it doesn't, you need a new motherboard.
