Puppy runs in ram, so if your hardware is good, generally speaking Puppy will load, that does not then mean that the hard drive will be accessible if the data is totally corrupted..
However it does of course require the graphics.
Here are the specifications for that computerhttp://h10025.www1.h...product=3245052
It was originally supplied with just the onboard graphics.
If it still has those the monitor will connect on the I/O plate (input/output) near to the mouse keyboard LAN, USB and speakers. etc. If it has an added graphics card the monitor will connect lower down the rear of the case, on a horizontal connection, as against the vertical of the I/O plate
Which is it please.
Additionally to that if you have already connected the USB flash drive, disconnect and also disconnect ALL except keyboard mouse and monitor. In otherwords if you have a USB printer connection, webcam etc disconnect all those.
Try Puppy again.
Also please confirm that you have followed the instructions on the link and are booting to Puppy from the CD and that you have NOT followed the possible instructions on the PUppy download link to boot from USB drive.
