Pretty tough to install anything without a functioning monitor...

Kathryn22...Try the procedure as outlined in post #15...

I had done this earlier on, moved the jumpers twice. I've even changed the battery on the actual motherboard to see if that helped but nothing, even had my boyfriends uncle around to have a look, but again nothing.

Customcomp: I had had sp2 working on it before the computer crashed while running a defrag.

Kathryn22...this is one wierd problem, isn't it???

If your video card is PCI, have you tried moving it to a different PCI slot?
If you have onboard video, have you tried that?

(Racking my brains on this one...)

The onboard doesnt work, dont know why jsut wont send a signal.
The video card has been tried in 2 different computers and the cards out of those computers tried in his pc, nothing worked.

I'm starting to think that the CPU is dead.

Good morning Kathryn22...

You stated in an earlier post that the machine was acting like it was booting...do you get the initial "beep"...if you do, the machine is posting so the processor is probably good. I'm leaning more towards the motherboard or hard drive. Have a look at the capacitors next to the CPU (cylinders...should be several)...do any of them bulge at the top?

They look new.
When the computer's started up it beeps, hdd and cdd's kick in, starts as if its normal, expect for the screen.

I think though it maybe the slot that the V-card slots into, if that can screw up somehow.
