Monitor turns on when I turn pc on and then shuts down.

Specs: Windows 7
I started having problems with the monitor staying on when I turned on my pc but then I started getting a blue screen with an error message. I took it in to the Geek Squad and now they are telling me that the computer wont even come on. That is goes to a black screen. He said the motherboard was out. Is there a solution to my problem? Its an HP with Windows Vista.

It could be anything. If they say it's the mobo, you can believe them and have them fix it or take it somewhere else for a second opinion. I would take it somewhere else, personally.

Do you know where else I can take it? And would it cost me just as much to buy a new one than to repair it?

"now they are telling me that the computer wont even come on. That is goes to a black screen. "
does this mean it is coming "on", and going to a black screen with a blinking cursor.
"Do you know where else I can take it?"
take it home and try booting from a bootable cd.
"And would it cost me just as much to buy a new one than to repair it?"
how much are they saying it will cost to repair??
