Having problems with your Dell PC Desktops ?

While installing windows xp monitor went blank, cd started to blink and would not open. I was useing a crt monitor at the time due to the fact thats alli had. HELP, what's wrong


Answers :

Nothing to do with the monitor, something went south during install. To test if the problem is hardware or software boot from a Linux Live-CD like http://pclinuxos.com/  . If you can and everything appears to function then your XP install disk is gone, replace it. If not, post again specifying this time where and when the problem has appeared : during boot, during loading of the OS, while using the OS and what (if any) error messages you have.
Turn off the computer. Try unseating and reseating the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time. After each reseat of the memory try turning on the computer and see if you get video back on the screen.

If not then try another monitor. If all that doesn't get video back on the screen then the motherboard is bad in the computer.
