Greetings.

Im working on a AMD Athlon™ XP 1700+ 1.47GHz, 256 MB RAM with Windows XP Home dition.
The computer is about six years old (the computer is not mine; I ignore if the guarantee is still runing).

Since a week I have seen an od message sometimes when I turn the pc on.
The message, which remains on the screen for about one or two minutes, appears only when the pc has been of for long periods of time (several hours).
It appears before any Bios sound, the lights on the CPU are a irregular, I cant oppen the CD drive as long the message is there and after its gone everthing works normaly (inclouding date and time)



Click here to see the message as it appears on my screen.



Please, could somebody tell me what the problem is and what can I do in order to fix it?

I would realy apreciate your help.

That message appears when the signal from the video card...is not reaching the system/monitor...for whatever reason.

I cannot tell you why it appears on a system that has been in use for so long...unless I suggest that the system components may be breaking down/wearing out.

If you do a Google search for "no signal on monitor", you will see that there are varied reasons/situations where this happens.
