gateway problems with ZX4300 display

Specs: Windows 7 sp 2
I Have a Gateway ZX4300 all in one with no display. On boot attempt it will begin, but hard drive clicks faintly three times and i get no POST beep at all. I hear no activity of windows startng behind the black screen. I tried using a windwos tool with a ISO image for a bootable entry and still no display, one other issue is the wireless keyboard and not be able to imput to the computer if the bootabe image is running behind the black screen.

Are you seeing the Gateway splash screen? If you are, try a wired keyboard & see if you can enter the BIOS. Check if your HDD is still being recognized or not (the clicking you heard may be due to a failed or failing drive). Do you have backups of your important files? You might be able to retrieve them by booting off a Linux disc then moving the files to a USB flash drive.

no i never see any acitivity on the screen whatsoever, and i tired using a tool to get in with a bootable CD, and the disc was spun but worked about three seconds of noise then stopped totally, no display.
