The screen on my P.C suddenly went black.
When I restart the computer the light on the monitor turns orange and then green. The screen is still black.
I cannot access the bios and cannot access the monitor's own display adjustments.
Could this be a problem with the graphics card, the motherboard or the monitor itself ?
I am unable to test the computer with another monitor.
Need VERY URGENT help.
I have reinserted everything attached to ther motherboard, cleaned some 10 year old dust from the graphics card fan and checked for loose connections.
When I restart the P.C and tap F8 the screen flickers but stays black.

I replaced the mb battery and there's a green light on the board so I'll assume that's a good thing. There's nothing on The graphics card which allows me to remove any leads. Monitor light stays orange.
OS xp with latest updates.
Thanks for all the help last night. I went out and purchased a new zotack geforce 6200a agp card. With no luck, the monitor light stays green. I tried removing the video cable on the new card and the light was orange.
Can't replace the vga cable either so I'm off out to buy a pc which was long overdue.
Four power supplies, two mb batteries, and two OS upgrades later, farewell and good riddance!
