no i cant get into safe mode because the computer turns on but the screen remains blank. nothing happens it just turns on. I just bought this computer of off Ebay...Came with no operating system so i thought i would slap linux on it but now I see bios cant boot into safe mode nothing but the beeps.. the list you gave me indicates that it is a motherboard issue i hope not it said gaurantee against DOA...its a Dell Optiplex Gx150...
