Hi Everyone                   os windows 98,Pen 3,P.C's 4 years old

Been working on this all day and i'm fed up and tired.Shocked

When i turn on the P.C it all sounds ok, but nothing shows on the Monitor, I've checked the Monitor, hard drive and memory on another PC and they all work fine, Could this be a problem with the BIOS ?

Please please Help

Hi,

Make sure your CPU and video card are well seated in their slots/sockets. The problem is with either the motherboard/CPU or the power supply or video card.

Video drivers are only used to obtain higher resolution at the OS level therefore they do not come into play until the OS loads. In this case the system is not producing ANY display from the time it is powered up indicating a hardware problem.

If the video card is well seated (if not integrated) and there is no beep code during power up, look at the devices I mentioned above.

Also, if all this started occuring after playing around with the hard drive/cdrom ribbon cable, then you have one backwards!
