Have a time computer few years old, running windows 98 with 128MB. Yesterday it was fine, and I did some housekeeping - removed unused programs, ran scandisk and error check and everything fine. Computer seems to start up as soon as switch on at the wall.

When I tried to start it up today, the computer makes starting noises and the red HDD light comes on and DVD drive light flashes, and after a few seconds the lights go off, but it is still chugging away. The monitor has a message saying "No Input Detected". I have tried it on a different monitor, and that one doesnt even seem to come up out of standby mode when the computer is plugged in.

Help? I dont know why it has suddenly all gone wrong and really need to fix it......fast!

Thanks in anticipation

did you delete any files?
sounds like it could be your video card.
I am going to ask a dumb question
is the monitor plugged into the computer?
I am assuming you checked that and it was.
try a different video card.
