Hi tytiyana..
i am giving my sugggestions.

Remedies. The remedies below should be performed \015\012\015\012 in order. NOTE:Turn off the computer after each step. Never work inside the \015\012\015\012 computer case with the power turned on.
\015\012\015\012 1. Check and make sure all cables are firmly attached \015\012\015\012 to the back of the computer and to all external devices. Retry.
\015\012\015\012 2. Remove the case cover from the computer. Make sure \015\012\015\012 all cables (hard drive, power cables, other disk cables) inside the \015\012\015\012 computer are firmly attached.
\015\012\015\012 Press down on all ISA and PCI cards and make sure they are firmly seated. \015\012\015\012 Make sure your DRAM memory cards are firmly seated. Feel the top of \015\012\015\012 the CPU and make sure it is not hot (warm is OK). Retry.
\015\012\015\012 3. This step is only for newly built computers that \015\012\015\012 have not successfully booted. Get out your motherboard manual, or \015\012\015\012 download one from the manufacturer's site, and go over all your motherboard \015\012\015\012 jumper settings.
\015\012\015\012 Set the jumpers in the most conservative position. Review all your accessory \015\012\015\012 wire connections (keyboard lock, hard drive access light, etc.) and \015\012\015\012 make sure the connectors to the motherboard are facing the same direction. \015\012\015\012 Retry.
\015\012\015\012 4. Turn the computer back on with the case off. Verify \015\012\015\012 that your CPU and power supply fan are running. If either one is not \015\012\015\012 running you have a problem. If the power supply fan is not running replace \015\012\015\012 the power supply (make sure the power connectors are correctly attached \015\012\015\012 to the motherboard). Make sure the CPU fan is connected to power on \015\012\015\012 the motherboard. If it is correctly connected and still doesn't run, \015\012\015\012 replace it. Retry.
\015\012\015\012 5. Unplug your computer. Remove all PCI and ISA cards. \015\012\015\012 Reinstall the video card and disconnect the hard drive cable. Plug in \015\012\015\012 the keyboard, video cable, and power cable. Restart your computer. If \015\012\015\012 this worked, go to Step 6. If your DOS screen doesn't come up at this \015\012\015\012 point try the following ideas.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012 a. Closely examine your motherboard and make sure it is not making contact \015\012\015\012 with the computer case, which will short it.
\015\012\015\012 b. Your video card, video cable, or monitor may be malfunctioning. Borrow \015\012\015\012 a video card, cable and monitor, retry.
\015\012\015\012 c. Remove and reinstall your DRAM. If your computer can not find system \015\012\015\012 memory it will not POST.
\015\012\015\012 d. Remove the CPU and reinstall it.
\015\012\015\012 e. Follow your motherboard manual's instructions for resetting your \015\012\015\012 BIOS to its default configuration.
\015\012\015\012 If your computer still will not boot into a DOS screen, \015\012\015\012 seek professional help.
