Good morning you guys, I have a bit of a problem. I have a computer and for some reason I am not getting anything on the Monitor. When I plugged the monitor to the pc the status light on the monitor is yellow. I added a new video card to see if it worked but still nothing, Please can someone give me some insight on what might be the cause of no display? I thought it was video card, but I guesss that wasn't the case. I even removed the memory sticks, tried different ones still nothing. HELP, me Please!!!!!!

Is this an e-machine by chance? Rather common issue from my experience with them... First things to look at is if you have another computer try the monitor and see if it works... Most likely however you are looking at a bad power supply or a bad motherboard ( unless you happen to have got a second bad video card...

It's an HP D530 SFF.

HP put exactly the same power supplies in their machines as eMachines do, the only difference is they last a bit longer.

Try working monitor on this computer. If it fails I'd argue the board's dead.

The Monitor does work for all the other computers except for that one.

Board's probably toast then.
Just to eliminate, take the side of the case off and then take out the memory, unplug the USBs and front audio, then the front panel connectors, then start the computer with a screwdriver by shorting the two jumpers where the power switch was. If no beeping noises, the board is toast.

I am not sure it's power supply or motherboard, because the Fan and the pc comes on it just that nothing is coming up on the screen.
