Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
Many monitors will produce a blue screen when they are receiving no input signal but most will give you some kind of alert on the screen to let you know the monitor is not at fault.
Try disconnecting the video cable from your system to see if the screen changes at all.
Also, restart your system and watch the drive lights on the system front panel to see if it is even booting; it may not be.
If it isn't, then the monitor is probably not the problem.
If the system seems to be trying to start, you could have a bad video card or monitor and the only way to reliably for you to identify which has failed is by substitution; borrow a monitor from a friend and try yours with their system.
If the exchange shows your monitor to be working with their system but not with yours and their monitor displays no video on your system, then (if your system seems to be starting up) the video card or on-board video chip has failed.
