Computer turns on but does not display

March 8, 2011 at 02:13:57
Specs: Windows xp
My Dell desktop powers on but nothing is displayed on the screen. The monitor light glows green.
I do get some screen activity when I press F2, F8,F12 when starting up. In the set-up mode the activity log indicates "keyboard error". I've switched out the keyboard with no improvement. I'm not very technical (60 something) and would appreciated any help to fix.
Thank you

Always post your system specs in order to get prompt help here, but since I'm in prison, I have nothing better to do, so...:

What kinda Dell?
How Old?
Hows the motherboard look? Any bad capacitors?
Did you try another monitor?
Cables tight?
Any other symptoms PC is exhibiting?

Just another stupid saying...
