I have an HP Pavilion a1000 and when i turn it on, the fans come on but nothing else. I removed and cleaned the ram and the video card and anything else that i could. Where do i go from here? I purchased this computer brand new from a best buy about 6 years ago. I need this computer up and running asap. please help if you can. Thanks.

P.S. No beeps on start up or anything. just fan noise and lights on front of computer.

actually, I just did this on purpose! I'm guessing you have a computer tower. My guess is that your graphics card (GPU) is out or just not plugged in. I took the power out of my GPU and it's doing exactly what you described. Fans running, no beeps.
