    i'm curious to how you looked at the bios without a monitor? The above statement leads me to think you either switched out monitors and the other one worked, in which case your monitor is broken. Or that you used an integrated graphics card instead of the one you added. In which case your graphics card is either broken or you forgot to plug in the power connector to it.

    Thumbs up computer wont boot up


    Hi thank you for your reply. when the comuter is been swicthed on and off and one again the monitor works fine so i can see the bios but now i found out what the problem was i think.... any way it worked for me.
    here is what i did. i cheaked the ram and i had 1 x 4 256ddr1 pc 3200 but one of them was pc 400mhz instead so i just changed it with another one pc 3200mhz and now all is working just fine.
    hope this will help... and thank you for your help too...
