Any sign of other activity?
leds on
hard drive noise?
fans running?

trying to determine wether its booting or just a graphics problem.

the leds lights are working on the PC and monitor, and the Hard drive is not making any noise. I can hear the Window sound when booting up, also can hear the sounds of the screen saver.

Reseat the memory modules; if more than one try than one at a time if only one install in

a difference socket you might have a bad memory module

Is it a flat screen monitor? Could be the light tube or inverter has failed.
