For my birthday I got a Win98 SE machine with 160mb of ram and a P2, I would rush it to a repair shop, but when I boot it up, It says monitor going to sleep, is it the monitor, or the computer?

That's most likely because the monitor is not receiving any signal from the CPU. Did you check the connections?

No, For the CPU? I'm too lazy to remove the case ATM because it's the morning, also I don't know where the button to take it off is, I am using an HP 1530 LCD Monitor(Goodwill 15$ touch), Do you think I should try it with a different monitor first just in case(no pun intended) By the way, the PC is a Dell Optiplex GX1
