that means there is a memory problem,if you recently installed something inside of the case or tried to clean it ,that you might have displaced,or jared the memory loose,try to pull each 1 out seperatly and clean the contacts with 90% isopropyle alcohol and a lint free rag,let dry for a min. then reinstall into same slot,when you have done that,try to boot,if it still doesnt boot then you have bad ram.

Base from the description of your problem its really not an issue with your monitor its with the motherboard or the video card provided that you have a video card connected to it or you're using the built in video on your motherboard.

By the way when you power it on do you hear any beep sound and if so how many beep sound that will help us check what is the real cause of the problem.

So first thing that you can try to do here is to clean your RAM , so take it out from your moterboard and use a eraser to clean the golden teeth of the RAM and then put it back in and check if that will make it working again, also double check all the connections on your motherboard to make sure nothing is lose.

After doing those things and still same issue this is really a issue now with your motherboard and may need a replacement.

If you are trying to replace a non-working motherboard, try E-Bay. Search by the computer model number. You also will find the board with version number on the old board.

How to boot into safe mode or VGA mode Sometimes while changing video cards you can get Windows into such a bad state that it refuses to boot. If something is wrong with your display drivers Windows will often be unable to start up properly. But in order to fix the problem you need to get into Windows so you can re-install or fix your display drivers. So Windows won't run but you need to use Windows to try to fix the problem. Fortunately Windows can run in "safe mode" which allows it to boot while not using your installed display drivers. Unless Windows is severely damaged, it should be able to boot in safe mode.

To get into safe mode with Windows 98 and ME press and hold the Ctrl key immediately after you turn on your computer. In other versions of Windows you need to press the F8 key. On some computers you can press and hold F8 and on others you have to press F8 at the right time which is usually just after the initial BIOS screen (see fiddling with your BIOS) has been displayed. If you can

Try downloading either of the following two FREE utility programs. They both tell you many specifics about your entire system, and are free indefinitely. I like 'Belarc' better, because it seems to provide more info. It gives you this info in a web page format, so many items you can click on and go to their website (as in devices, Windows Updates, etc.). The 2nd one is made by the same people who make CCleaner, 'Piriform'--it's called 'Speccy'--it runs MUCH quicker, but not as much info is given. Download both, if you want--but I think Belarc will help you with your mobo model #. Usually this particular info is given in the upper-right hand side of the page on Belarc.
Hope this helps!

the most likely suspects are RAM failure (your computer memory has gone bad), or motherboard failure. One or the other.

Is this the HP Pavilion 521n? Did you run the Win7 Compatibility test before upgrading and search for the latest drivers? Did that compatibility test show any problems with of your hardware. HP doesn't have the drivers. The onboard audio chipset is (Realtek or Intel) AC97 Audio.

I know for my WinXP to Win7 upgrade, I was able to find the appropriate drivers from the Device Manager. (Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager.) Then I needed to run Windows Update (Start > All Programs > Windows Update. Look for optional updates and check for new ones) to install the driver (since I didn't let Windows Update automatically install.) You can get drivers to install automatically by changing the settings. Start > type change device installation settings in the search box. Click on Change device installation settings and set this to automatic. Then save the changes. However, my on-board sound is a SoundMax driver.

When I checked the Realtek site for downloads, I got a loop to "object moved" http://www.realtek.com/Downloads/downloadsCheck.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=23&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false
http://www.softwarepatch.com/utilities/ac97vista-security-dl.html may work; this is a Realtek driver for Vista or Win7.

If you have added an audio card, you need to check with the manufacturer.

I hope this helps.
