Hey, I think this is the right section...

I've just started up my computer and the screen won't come on. Although the shade of black appears to alter slightly just after being turned on. I've checked the cables, power to computer and monitor, both fine. The keyboard lights come on and the mouse light also comes on. I can hear the hard disk and fan whirring away too.

Before there was no display on startup, this occured after I had a problem with the graphics card the display would appear at the Win XP startup screen. I checked for viruses the last time that the computer was switched on, so it was clean.

Not really sure what else to try, short of taking it to a PC repair shop!

Thanks for your help!

Thanks for your help, the display is coming on now for some reason! I'll be back if it does it again!

Cheers!
