    Been stuck on this for a whole. Im fixing my friends dell dimension desktop. The computer boots up, no beeps, windows starts. but i have no signal whatsoever from my monitor. I checked if the ram or any cables were loose and nothing. im using on-board vga but i even tried inserting an extra pci express video card i hard laying around as well, and still no signal. i replaced the RAM and still no signal. then i tried with 4 different monitors and all of different brands and still no signal.

    The computer was working fine and one day my friend went to go turn it on and no signal at all.

    The only thing i havent tried is replacing the power supply, do you think i should give it a try?

    Thanks in advance

    Often you need to get into the bios to disable the onboard graphics and use a PCI card - which is a bit catch 22 when the display does not work ......
    With the Sound on do you get the windows starting sound ?
