Re: Computer no responding
The system is looking for a device to boot from. Make sure that your hard drive is properly connected, then make sure that it is the only drive connected. Remove any USB thumb drives, CDs and floppy disks. Now leave the case off while you switch on so that you can ear the HD spinning. if you can't, the disk may be damaged and need replacing.

im only having a guess but i think it could be your ram is corrupt its known for the screen to go white when theres ram problems try taking out one of the sticks of ram and see does that sort it if not put that one back in and take out the other one if you only have one stick of ram then i would suggest bringing it to a store to get fixed it might not be any of these but its worth a try...look up youtube to see how to remove ram and dont remove it with the computer turned on and dont put it back in with the pc on either make sure its off and touch something metal before opening the pc to discharge any static...hope this helps
By the way, is it an LCD screen? I guess so. LCDs have small IC's either on the lower portion or in the left side of the screen. When these become loose, the tendency is to have vertical or horizontal lines on the screen. Hot air blower might solve the problem. But most will not. Better claim warranty or replace the unit.
Could be a power supply. Fluctuations in that can cause power drops, which would be visible in the video card, and if severe enough, cause the PC to shut off. There are 4 screws and one 1 wire holding those in. It would take about 10 minutes to replace and probably cost you $40-$50 in parts.
the resolution set by default when you load your graphics driver is outside the range of your monitors capability.
try starting in safe mode then adjust your resolution to 640 by 480 then restart.
if this works, adjust upwards to 1024 by 768
then up again till the screen blanks.
when it does, dont panic, wait 20 seconds and the settings will restore - you then have the optimum settings for your monitor.
Psu is a Power Supply issue but the black screen with a blinking white line is not.
The blinking white line can mean there is no instructions to tell the Computer to boot up. Which could be possibly the system battery (cmos) or Hard Drive.
I would narrow those 3 things down first.
