Gateway dt turns on, but black screen

November 29, 2011 at 13:22:29
Specs: Windows XP
While rebooting I tried holding F1 for BIOS with no success. On a separate reboot I tried holding F8 with no success. The CPU is humming like it is working. Monitor appears to be working fine.

Nothing at all on the screen from the moment you switch your PC on?
It's either a faulty signal cable, faulty monitor or a faulty graphics card.

"Monitor appears to be working fine"

How do you know, have you tried it (and the signal cable) on a different PC?
If both monitor & signal cable work on a different PC, you need to fit a new graphics card.

Thank you for your reply. I believe that the monitor is working because when i push one of the buttons on the from "screen saver mode' appears on the screen.
