Question about Northgate (STAX2517C2) PC Desktop

Monitor receives no signal, hard-disk light is on

While typing in MS-Word, my Northgate Home PC just randomly froze and was completely unresponsive, ctrl+alt+del would not work. I had to cut the power to get it to restart; when it did restart, the monitor would not display anything, the "not connected" flashing light turned on my monitor, and the red "hard-disk" light turned on my tower. I've tried everything, including using different monitors, they all had the same problem. I've also checked all of the external and internal connections, including the power supply and all that jazz--and I even made sure all of the internal connections were in their proper locations.

Totally out of optons. I'm considering bringing in my hard drive to a specialist to retreive my word files. Any suggestions?

    U were right. I tinkered around with my video card port which seemed to work. It didn't fix the problem, but it allowed the monitor to work long enough for me to back up my files onto an external. Thanks for the tip.

You might need to change your AGP video card (the card where you attach your monitor cable). If a separate video card is not present, you might be getting your video directly from your mainboard. If the latter is the case, you can buy or borrow a PCI card with video port, insert it in a PCI slot in your mainboard and attach your monitor there.

Does the monitor go out completely, no power? Or just lose a signal? Check ALL cables, AC and Monitor cables. Could be a Graphics adapter issue or Monitor , try another monitor.Your computer has a few miles on it , right? You could buy a PCI Graphics card if the monitor is OK.

We need to narrow down to find out if it is your PC is not sending the video signal to the monitor or the monitor itself is bad, you need to try this monitor with another PC or try this PC with another monitor.

I didn't see this model listed, so perhaps the number is wrong?
If you have an operating system disk, you should be able to reinstaIl  by just inserting the disk and following the prompts.
checked one model, and that seems to be the method Fujitsu uses.
