Hey, Ive got a computer thats been sittin around in my room and i decided to get it going.. its only not going cos i screwed up a windows xp install something about partitions anyway, more on that later, now all ive done is plugged the power into the tower and plugged the monitor in.

Now last time the monitor was on it had a few green dots all over it and i had no idea why, i turn it on now and a little box says "No Signal" then goes into standby, and when i turn the computer on.. it just stays on standby (the monitor was in bubblewrap and completely damage free FYI)

its a BenQ LCD FP73G

any help will b greatly appreciated..

cheers

I just fixed the monitor by playing with the ram.. now to the main issue..


"Windows could not start because of a computer disk hardware configuration problem.
Could not read from the selected boot dsk, Check boot path and disk hardware,

I have a 40gb harddrive currently plugged in, with no OS on it, like i said in previous post i stuffed up the installation (noobie).. not sure on how to change boot path.. i did have a 90gb harddrive plugged into it aswel. but that was just a backup harddrive didnt have an OS installed on it

Unsure of where I go next..

Since you say the 40GB doesn't have the OS on it, are you sure the OS didn't actually get installed onto the 90G drive if it was fitted during the failed installation?

First up, you need to determine whether the computer is actually sending no signal out to the monitor, or the if monitor is failing to detect the output from the computer. The simplest way to be sure is to try the monitor on another computer, or another monitor on that computer. However another indicator is do you hear the normal startup sequence from the computer - single POST beep, Windows startup sound? If not, the computer is likely the source of the problem.


sorry for wastin ur time on that post :thumbsup:
