Screen does not come on, the 2 green lights come on sometime but mostly the first screen one, the four lights come on for a second then go out when I push the turn on button. Is there a reset button? I do hear like a motor inside that eventually turns off. The plug seems to be hot when I am charging the computer
Do you have another monitor available to put in place of this one? Most likely the monitor has a problem and should be replaced. Before I purchase a new one though, I would either borrow a monitor to test my system or put this one on another computer to verify if it works. If it does, then you must test the video card.

Could you please post back with the status of four lights at the back of the system title ABCD. Also does the system shows the dell logo on the screen as and when the power light comes on.
Try removing the memory and disconnect the HDD and the optical drives from the motherboard and then power on the system. If the system comes on reseat all the above components one by one.

It might be a couple of things bad powersupply or power button incorrect ram module or hard drive settings ,if not then lastly have a bad motherboard which we all hate. you said you have a a green light on motherboard? Did you upgrade or install any new ram ,harddrives etc check make sure they are seated properly in their sockets and free from dust check connection on the ram module make sure it shinny brass color if not you can use an eraser to clean them. If you have upgraded check make sure the ram is compatible to your machine sometimes the wrong ram install can cause no power up problem. Do you have four green lights in the back of machine? Dell new desktop has 4 green light in back of the unit . if all four light are green then system is ok but one out of the four light are orange then you have a problem. You can go onto dell web sight for your machine to check out these lights codes. I hope this help you out some.
