I am running a Pentium 4 with Windows XP.  When I start the computor it beeps and gives me a green light.  The monitor says no signal with a green light.  The no signal goes out giving me a black screen and the light on the monitor turns yellow.  The beeps are as follows 1-8-2-1.  Help!!!

Hi JB,
I'm not finding any beep codes like what you posted.Look here.
http://www.pchell.com/hardware/beepcodes.shtml#Award
Shut down the computer & unplug it.Take the side panel off.Grab the bare metal with both hands to discharge any static electricity.Take the video card out & clean the gold contacts with an eraser.Put the video card back in & make sure it's seated correctly.If it's a pci video card,try a different slot.
Take care.
