No signal to monitor, fans running

September 5, 2010 at 12:22:50
Specs: Windows XP, 2GB
4+ yrs old. Screen froze up when on screen saver. Tried to reboot but just squiggly lines on display. Now when I turn on, there is no signal to the monitor and only hear fans running hard. Only recent changes to unit is upgraded RAM from 512 to 2G about 4 weeks ago which helped alot.

Sounds like the same issue I have with my desktop at times (no power to the monitor and the fans whirling like crazy), and that^ was the advice I was given.
