Monitor is out. Switched it with a working monitor, same results, not the monitor, maybe the card,(graphics or video). Any help in fixing this? Remember, no monitor on the CPU to do any troubleshooting. thanks

If you turn on the PC, does it seem to be booting like normal? Any beeps? Fans turn on, lights turn on, hard drive make noise, etc?

If more than one monitor gets no signal, there's probably a hardware problem. Could be either a bad GPU or CPU. Depending on your motherboard, some may give an audible beep as an error code, many others do not. :( 

Do you have another video card you can possibly install to see if it works? Or even integrated graphics built into the motherboard by chance?

PC is always on. I fear rebooting because if the monitor does not work, I will not be able to see the status of the reboot or system. There is a very faint barely visible greenish Nike type swish figure on the corner of the monitor - and the power lite is on. Monitor has a faint glow in the dark.

No audible beep. Don't know how to change the video card or GPU but can't be that hard. Don't have another card on hand. What's your best advice on the way to approach this? Don't know about intergrated graphics built in motherboard? CPU is an HP a6200n

Looks like your system has integrated graphics. Based on the problem you're having, it sounds like something in the motherboard (CPU, integrated GPU, etc) has died.

May be time for a repair, or possibly a new PC.
