Question about HP Compaq d330 (DG315A) PC Desktop
Let's check the obvious first...
Make sure monitor cables are attached correctly and securely.
Is the monitor receiving power/turned on?
Assuming monitor was working at some point and not damaged...
Start up PC in safe mode (press F5 key when you see Windows logo at startup). This will use a default VGA driver. If LCD works now, you may need to check for and replace the video driver for the monitor. Go to the manufacturer's website for the monitor. If LCD does not work, I suspect a hardware failure in the LCD monitor.
If this is a new, under warranty, you can take back to place of purchase for an exchange. Receipt may be required. If not under warranty, you may be looking at buying a new monitor. LCD have come down in price. My recommendation would be the Samsung SyncMaster. 15 inch size is cheapest. 17 inch have become very competitive. 19 inch and up can be expensive depending on brand. Watch for sales. Local club stores like Sam's or Costco sometimes have deals, too. Of course, their are online sources too like newegg.com.

Testimonial: "thanks was helpful. LCD was working fine and still is think it's the hardrive thats the trouble and it's not new."
Your PC has a blue VGA output on the back of it, this is an analog video output. Most LCD's have a VGA input, though some higher end models may only have DVI (white, longer connector, with many small square holes with a small horizontal slot) input.
A VGA to DVI converter may be your solution!
