Start up problem

Hi can someone give me the main reasons why my PC has stopped starting up. It seems to go through the boot sequence, the monitor light is green-the screen stays black and the monitor light goes back to orange. The fans appear to be functioning.

sorry, the only thing i can suggest is to check all your cables are connected firmly. can ask a friend if you can borrow a monitor and graphics card and try swapping them for your own as it could be faulty hardware.

Listen to the beeps when comp is going through the boot sequence one beep is normall no beeps or more then one beep and that suggests you have a fault, sounds to me as tho its your graphics card it might of worked its way loose as they do in older systems.

go into the bios setting and check everything there saves ripping the pc apart
