Alrigtht up until a few days ago my comp was running fine. Now it just plainly wont start up. The light in the power button has no color, but just the HDD light is solid. So i say HDD problem. The problem is though i start it up and thats all it does, starts up. Monitor stays off, nothing. So to make it short, power on nothing on the screen.

Anything to help guys, cuz im lost.

Wow, It's hard to say for sure, especially with the amount of information that was given. Have you made any changes, either software or hardware before the problem started?

Clear the CMOS and see what happens,even if you haven't made any changes.
I had a memory problem and the HDD light stayed solid,so it could be any piece of hardware.

i know that there was kinda a lack of info, but thats the thing, all the info i have you have. I wasnt on the comp, other pieces of sh it in my house did it.
let me try to explain it better, when i hit ON, it starts up, and sounds fine. But as its on nothing happens screen blank, HDD light is solid. Also no hardware changes for sure, software pretty sure nothing maybe settings. I know thats big, but i cant get anything out of them anyway, cuz all i hear is I DIDNT DO ANYTHING.



Anything you need to know about the comp i can tell you.

The CMOS is a jumper on your motherboard,I hope you have the manual.
But it sounds like some hardware has sh it itself.Is the CPU fan going.

When your posting a problem with a PC please post your PC specs. It helps knowing what type of CPU, mobo, ram, power supply and wattage, operating system, etc the PC has. Include any other information that you can think of that may help isolate the problem.

Try the following:
Disconnect all the drives, remove all cards except your video card and any external devices except the keyboard. Reseat your video card if it is not onboard and try getting the machine to post it's bios startup screen.

It could also be the power supply that has gone bad. If you have a spare that is at least the same wattage as the one in the machine try it.
