I recently blew out my pc with a compressor 110psi (dumb, iknow now) then when hooked up to monitor, no monitor. cooling fan started running full on and power switch does not turn pc off, i have to unplug it. Took to a pc shop they reseated all the components and diagnosed it as a mother board.(the weird part is, they said it is "probably" the motherboard???) bought an exact HP mobo replacemant and installed it, still no nonitor. one thing i noticed was when i powered up, the on/off button for the monitor is orange when off and blue when on, would turn blue for a few seconds and then turn orange again as though the monitor is off. I did blow out the cooling fans and the blades did turn fron the comp.air being blown over them.My monitor is hooked up to a DVI input the computer is an HP d4100e desktop. see this page: http://h20141.www2.hp.com/Hpparts/Search_Results.aspx?mscssid=92B7675C69A644CEB4951A06B49597CB&SerialNumber=mxg60902vc&ProductNumber=PX191AV

Yes it is as it supplies the video signal to the monitor. Did the tech that you brought it to test it? Did he make sure it is seated properly and fully if not please be sure of this. Also check the video cable and the monitor to be sure the monitor isn't the issue. :)

So, would the cooling fans running at full speed from initial power on, be caused by the vid card?
