    I really hope someone can help me here. I have a computer which when powered up constantly shows "override" on the screen and will not boot up.

    I used to be able to unplug the power cables and then reseat them and this seemed to work but now it doesn't resolve the problem.

    Can anyone tell me what is wrong and what I can do to remedy the situation.

    Thanx in advance.

    This means that the monitor is generally not getting an input from the computer or there's a problem with the monitor. Check all the connections between the computer and monitor, try another monitor if possible.

    Also note if the computer beeps, and if so what pattern. You should also open up the computer case and make sure that the video card is seated correctly as is the RAM. reseat both to make sure the connection is good. However, if a part in the computer has failed, you'll need to swap parts to determine which component it is.
