    Not very tech savy. Dell desk top 8400 series A03 Bios. 5-6 years old. Will not boot. Only get to blinking curser top left corner. Had it checked out told to replace video card and VG cable. Same problem. Tech was able to pull screen up when checking out. I was told not hard drive problem. Desperately need assistance..

    E:(

    You might want to get another opinion.It could be a failing harddrive or the motherboard.Im guessing that its an older dell dimension desktop. At 6 years old it could be any number of things.Does the hard drive even show in the BIOS or boot order?If not then theres a problem with it.Are you getting any beeps at all and are any of the lights in the back of the tower not lit?
