I have removed hard drive and it just does the same thing fans running but black screen, I suspect the hard drive is the fault Anyone else any ideas Big al

Even without the hard drive you would get a splash screen or bios screen while loading. Don't know if a projector would work without a monitor? Try reinstalling the drive and connect it to your TV if no spare monitor. On boot-up if still a black screen and system seems to be running ok then then the on board GPU might be dead.
