Can you get into Safe Mode?

Unplug everthing non-essential from the computer and see if it will boot then.

Try opening up the computer, give it a good clean and check for any loose wires or connections.

Do u hear a single sound of computer when it start.That is usually a confirmation of ram detection .If u do not hear any sound then try to open the computer unseat the ram clear the slots with a brush and u r ram has gold lining on it do you see some black thing covering it if yes then use a pencil rubber and rub it on the gold lining to clear off any black thing on it usually the display dont come when there is some dirt on the ram or the mother board

Where in the startup process does the computer stop responding? Are you hearing a post beep? Is there anything showing on the screen or just a black screen? Do you have another monitor you can try?

So to clarify:

1) Your monitor works, but only on another machine
2) Your computer boots but nothing appears on the screen

Things to consider or post back with:
a) Do you hear any beeps when you switch on your computer?
:thumbsup: Can you hear the hard disk wirr into action?
c) What graphics card do you have?
d) When did this problem occur e.g after an install of new hardware/software?

If all else fails, hit the reset button.

You have a blown motherboard or cpu. Are you able to swap either out with a friends computer?. If it is only two months old, a quick trip back to the seller is in order.

Agreed Firecracker. I was looking at his last post, can you say what you mean by "everything" quote :The computer will not boot everything turns on but it will not boot up, dewaltracingfan?

Don't know if this will help but i just had the same problem i teasted the hard drive and the ram then tried my monitor on my other pc last thing i did was change the power supply and what do you know my pc is working fine now.

I am not saying this will work for you but worth a try.

I am still having a problem getting this computer to work. when i said that everthing turns on i meant that the hard drive comes on, the dvd rom, the disk drive comes on, and the fan comes on. So should i try taking the ram out and cleaning it.
