    Hi Lemmor and Johnyu_05, thanks for your help.



    I tried the monitor with another pc. The problem is not the monitor.



    Here are a few more details:



    The light on power button at front of tower does not light. Instead I have a solid yellow light underneath power button in front of tower. (harddrive?) The green cd rom and dvd rom lights flash momentarily at start up. Then only the yellow LED stays on.

    No other lights work.



    The cooling fans on the tower and the power supply box work when I power up. I have to hold down the power button until it shuts down.



    I don't know what the battery looks like nor where it is located. I do know that the only changes I made was replace the power supply and upgraded memory.



    I hope this info helps.



    Thanks so much for your help!

Hello,

1. If you see your computer somewhat reading your files, "you should see the Harddrive LED flashing long or short for sometime", that tells you that the screen has a problem.

or
2. If no harddrive activity, then the problem will be on the motherboard, check the CMOS battery if it reads 3V or if it is more than a year old it needs to be changed.

or
3. Remove and clean the memory contacts and insert it back.

Now test the computer.

Post me back if it doesn't work.

Hi Lus;
What color do you have on the power button of your monitor? Check the VGA port at the back of your computer, how many VGA ports do you have? if you have 2, try the other port instead,

here is a VGA port:

    Hi Lus,
    have you check your VGA Port? do you have a video card? if yes, is it plug there?

    again, please check if you have 2 VGA ports or 1 at the back of your CPU. if you have 2, try the other look alike VGA port.

Setting the second sata hard drive as main drive


In your BIOS there is a section on Boot Priority. Set it to where it always boots from your 1Tb hard drive and this will make it the master. Another thing I did before I installed mine was to take the side panel off (computer unplugged) and remove the little CMOS Battery. That causes it to loose volatile memory and gives you a fresh start.
It worked on mine, but don't do what I did, closely observe which way the battery is turned. You can put it in upside down!

Black screen


Ensure that the power button is pressed and the monitor is plugged in correctly. If ok, then the installation was stopped while installing your video drivers. If possible use another monitor to re-load the xp operating system until completed. Once the video monitor drivers are loaded the monitor will work again. Let me know if you have any questions.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.

To resolve the problem,do the following step,

3. Select safe mode
4 Hit enter on the next screen and logon using the administrator or your name
