I can feel the harddrives spining but monitor will not come out of sleep mode, my first thought was the video card but i see no activity on my ram.. i found a bare spot on one of my ide cables goin to my hdd but i dont think it was the problem any help a new starting point perhaps.. been so long since i messed with one im lost....

Video card fan isn't turning? Then it most likely isnt getting power, which would be your problem.

Yeah i catch ya drift but youd think id still have action on the ram since windows would still be booting up right?? but it just lights up and drops out after a few seconds. i dunno i figure its either the mobo or the videocard.. but since i dont have a spare of either and my video card is a ragged agp card i dunno. its rather irritating i know that
