Tried that. Pulled out my ATI card, and tried using the onboard. It did the same thing.

Thanks. I do the same thing.
If I'm lucky, it might just be the power supply. When I boot up the computer, it goes through all it's checks and tests, but then when the XP logo should be coming on screen, it just stays black. (I've had a similar problem before) I had a whole lot of tools and stuff stolen from me a month or so ago, my multi-meter being among everything, so I haven't had the chance to test it yet. I might have another one at home somewhere to try swapping it out with.

Karen has a dell p4/ht 3.4GHZ 1GB 400/533 DRAM 256MB nVidia video card. I swapped out all the parts I had extra for (power supply, video card, memory, etc) The only things left original are the mobo, processor and HD.
Now what happens is when you turn it on you hear the fans and everythign spinning but the nothing else. You dont hear any HD activity and the monitor does not power up/no signal. At first this would lead me to think the mobo or proc but a weird thing is that the switch wont power the pc off again, you need to switch off at the power supply swicth on the back. And when yuou turn the ps back on the pc often turns itself back on every few hours unless you unplug it. The switch also feels "funny" when you push it but that might be me because now i have it in my head that its the power switch. But because its this dell case, theres absolutley no way to get to the switch without breaking the case apart.
Im gonna try a few more things this weekend and if i still cant it going my friends I will have to beg for one of those pc's you guys want to donate to the poor gumby & karen fund lol. Karen is just about ready to kill me in her sleep she has not quakes in TWO YEARS! and she loves to quake for hours on end for those that remember her.
good call dyn "live cd" to figure out problem and i was thinking of telling him format "IF" he dont have anything important in pc "DEAN SINSTROM" windows could be curruped and ive seen dat before..many times on my old pc bios stas and all until logo and might just reach login
