computer is an old compaq presario sr1000

i just used D-BAN succesfully to wipe the hard drive then on installing windows XP it crashed it was stuck on 31% for hours so i turned it off and now there is no signal going to the monitor so it is dead in the water right now

 

i tried another monitor and same thing when i press a button on the monitor it says it is in power saving mode

 

i tired pulling out the power cable and holding the power button in for 1 minuite then putting the cable back in and powering up but that didnt work either

 

computer seems to boot up normally fan is on green light is on makes the usual noises also tried it with bootable usb in the computer and a dvd but nothing

 

what do?

If you don't get video (especially so early in the boot process), and you've tried another monitor, then the next thing to test with would be another video card.

Beyond that, I'd post over in the Internal Hardware forums for more expert assistance:    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/7/internal-hardware/

Most often a lack of video is due to the video card.

While a failing hard drive has been known to cause this sort of thing, it's pretty uncommon (but it won't hurt to try)

 

If you don't have another video card, you may want to purchase one from a place that will refund your money if the card isn't needed (and you return it).
