If there are no beeps then it might not be posting or not posting at all. It's possible there is something wrong with BIOS.

You need to start sorting things out. It's trial and error at this point. Check all connection including the video card, RAM and monitor cable. Try the monitor on another system.

I cant find the manual online for the correct jumper to clear it. It is a VIA KL 133 chipset on a hp pavilion xt983. How bad is it to just try a few different jumpers? It looks like J10 may be it but not sure.

It is usually very near the battery. It is not a good idea to just start moving jumpers around. If you only have one near the battery, that is the one.

Unplug the machine. Remove the battery for about 10 minutes and put the battery back in and try it.

It looks like that might be the problem. It is the same type of capicitor that I have and looks like maybe the same thing. It looks to be burned out and a slight gap at the bottom. It also is looser than all the others. I will look into this. Thanks
