Yesterday I moved my computer from one desk to another and today it seems dead. I have XP and when I try to start up it makes the whirring noise in the beginning but no beeps and no video on the monitor. I tried another monitor and still the same. When the monitor is disconnected it give the loss of signal message. Any ideas ?

Is your system a desktop? If so, remove the side of the case and check the connections to your hard drive and from the drive to the motherboard. If you have a video card, make sure it's still seated firmly in the slot. It's possible that something was knocked loose when you moved it.

It is in fact a desk top and I will in fact check those items tomorrow morning. Thanks for the thoughts. Does anyone think it could be the HD ??? That is my big fear. Tons of photos on it. Grrrrrrr
