No signal input check video cable

Specs: Windows XP, Intel Viiv Dual Core 2048MB
I have an HP dual core processor desktop. I bought a new monitor (Hanspree 20"). The computer was working fine for the last 2 weeks, then 2 days ago the monitor or keyboard will not turn on.

When I turn on the desktop, there is a slight hum sound then nothing. I turn the moniot off and then on and then it gives me the message "No signal input check video cable".

I checked the cable, I even moved the CPU to another moniotor but it still did not dispaly anything and gave the same message.

If I leave the cpu on the fans run constantly without turning off.

Any ideas. Thanks

"No signal input check video cable"

The monitor's not getting a signal from the video card. The problem is not with the monitor.

"I even moved the CPU to another moniotor but it still did not dispaly anything"

A CPU is a chip that fit's in the motherboard, it's also known as a processor. You apparently have a dual core CPU. I think what you mean is you tried connecting a different monitor to your computer but that it still didn't work?

Are you getting any kind of beeps when you 1st bootup?

Moving the CPU will have no effect what-so-ever on curing your problem...

Yes I tried connecting th computer to a different monitor and still nothing came on the monitor.

There is only a hum sound when I turn on the computer.

No beep sounds.

The CD drive lights flashes and then stops.

The lights on the keyboard came on for a split second then went off.

First place to look is powersupply. It may be partly failing and without a known good powersupply you cannot begin to test other components.

I do not believe it is the powersupply. I took the tower to another room and connected it to the functioning computer's monitor...That still did not help. Thanks
