I have a HP Pavilion (don't know the type at this moment) that I bought 3 years ago. I tried to boot my computer a week ago. At first I can hear the fan, then the fan will decrease its sound so you can barely hear it, but it's still running. The monitor will say that my computer didn't start properly and give me the option to start in regular mode or safe mode etc.... (I have picked them all). Then the fan will kick on and sound normal again, then my monitor goes to sleep, then I will get the Windows XP screen and then it starts all over again in circles. It doesn't really boot 100%.
I have unplugged and plugged and unplugged...... and nothing seems to work. Could it be my hard drive is shot? It's looking for Windows and can't find the software to fully boot?

You can reboot your HP Pavilion, and while rebooting go to BIOS by constantly tapping F1. And then there has to be an option which you need to enable "Wake up by Space bar" option. Once you enable the option, save the BIOS settings and then try whether the issue persists or not.
The problem you are encountering is not your monitor but your computer. There is a problem with your CPU unit. To know this info in true then try this.,remove the connections of the monitor from your own computer then use the monitor to the other computer and see. Hope this could help you determine the real problem.

Try connecting an external monitor to the laptop, power up the monitor first then boot up the laptop. The video data will switch to the monitor automatically, check if the monitor dislays a normal image and see if the image stays on the monitor.
Also press and hold the Fn key and press the F4 key, these keys toggle the video output between the LCD screen and the video port.
Test to see if this functions correctly.
Get back to me with the results of the tests.
The no input VGA signal just means that the monitor is not receiving anything from the graphic card on the tower. Is the card a digital (DVI) output card? You'll know by the connector, it's white and slightly wider than a standard VGA connector. If so, perhaps the monitor is set to the wrong input?
If that isn't the case, and the computer is using an on-board or built-in graphics controller, you could try resetting the system's CMOS settings by setting the clear-settings jumper on the system board, or simply remove the plug and CMOS battery for a few minutes. Check the computer's documentation on the exact steps to do this.
