Specs: Windows XP

I have been using a PC with P3 processor(intel 810E) ,256 MB SD RAM since last 8 years.

I have 2 OS in my PC since last 3-4 years. Windows 98 and Windows XP.

I have two Hard disk with capicity of 20 GB and 80 GB.

Both OS has been installed on seperate Hard disk.

I am using LCD 22" TV as a monitor since last 4 months

PROBLEM :- Since last 5 days, i am facing problem when I select the windows XP(between 2 OS ,win98 and win XP) as system boots ,the Monitor goes blank and gives "NO SIGNAL" while the CPU is running. Then I try to restart it again and again, some of the times the monitor gets the signal and running well and sometimes not.

and the strange thing is that when I select the windows 98 ,it is working fine,there is no problem.monitor working fine. everything working fine in 98 but as i go for the XP the problem persists.

To solve the issue ,i have already format the drive on which the XP was install and again reinstall the XP with different XP cds 4-5 times.

But the problem remains as it is.

I have also install the XP on the other hard disk on which 98 is installed,But no effect on the problem.

Now i am getting no clues,How to solve the problem. Please help and advice for the same.

First do not put you email address in posts as you will end up receiveing a lot of SPAM.

I do not want to be alarmist BUT:
From the age of your system and your symptoms it is likely that you may possibly have a motherboard which is at the early phases of suffering from Leaking / Bulging capacitors.

If this is the problem then slowly it will become worse and you will also see it on your Windows 98 and eventually it may stop booting altogether.

In order to check whether this the case or not visit:
Look at the pictures on this site of the kind of things you might expect to see on your motherboard.

When everything else fails, read the instructions.
