    I recently tried to run a destructive factory recovery on my desktop HP Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, which i have done in the past without a problem. For reasons unknown this time the screen was completely blank when it finished. It is as if im looking at a turned off monitor, no signs of any activity what so ever, just a black blank screen. I do not have any type of recovery disc to this computer at this time , though if i get it back up and running that will be the first thing i do. I really dont know what other information I can give about it. The computer is on , the monitor is on but it looks as if it is off. any help pointing me in the right direction would be greatly apprecciated.

    Hi,
    Can you see even the mouse?
    I guess that you already checked the monitor cable. Can you try with an other monitor?
    It is hard to fix if there is nothing to see, at least without the recovery disc :(
    The problem can be the drivers or video card itself..

    If you have an LCD monitor it can be the back light,
    Try to light it with flashlight or something like that. If you can see something going that is your problem.
