    i was just recently working on a xp machine and i left it for about roughly 5 min and coming back i noticed the screen just black out , it was hooked up to a kvm switch so i pluged it in directly and still nothing ... i took apart the pc and put it back together , and i also tried a pci video card.( was originally onboard ) it just amazes me that this can happen like this but what is the fist thing that comes to your mind .... the pc goes on all fans are going .... thank u for feed back

    Although it's usually something else don't forget to try another monitor. On some MBs with onboard video adding a PCI video card will disable the onboard, but on some it won't so that can still be the problem. Start with everything removed except CPU/HS/Fan, RAM(one stick if you have two) and video. Try resetting BIOS with either the MB jumper or removing the battery. After that it's replacing parts. What make and model do you have for a system?

    Just because the "fans are running" does not necessarily mean a lot though.

    Unless the PSU voltages are all correct, the CPU will not run, but the fans may still be running OK.

    The problem still could be anywhere, PSU, CPU, Motherboard etc. Its a process of elimination.
