Try connecting a different monitor to the computer that isn't responding correctly. It may lie in the old monitor. I have had a few lightning strikes or power surges that blew the monitor and never touch the computer. Just a thought.
I have 2 computers (p4, winxp professional), and I turned them off for the weekand, when I came back on monday, neither would boot up - It just went to windows loading screen and kept cycling.
I have reinstalled windows xp on the one and its back, but the other computer 'turns off' (computer is still on, and fans are working, but essentially nothing works) when trying to do things. I can't get into windows, I can't reinstall windows, I've tried booting from a linux live CD and that doesn't work. I have replaced memory, powersupply, IDE cables, video card, taken off all components (CDrom etc), I have even tried the HD on another computer and it works.
Any other ideas? Motherboard? CPU? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
