During our move our computer got dropped. Now when started up the Windows XP deal comes up, but when it should go to the desktop it goes blank and the monitor goes into powersave mode. The computer sounds like its running but does nothing. Just looking for some direction on what to replace. Or should I just scrap it. It's a Dell Dimension PC that is bone stock. Any help would be great. Thanks.
