Solved when I turn on power, lights come on and off continually

Specs: Windows 7
When powered on, computer lights come on and then off every few seconds but screen stays dark. I was told it might be the nvidia chip but I was unable to locate it. The fan was completely obstructed with dust but now is clean as a whistle.

If you never ever see anything on the screen at all it is almost certainly a hardware issue. Monitor/Screen or its connections is another possibility.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

✔ Best Answer
You are saying that the main power light comes on for a few
seconds, then goes out again, and continues doing that?

How long does it take to go out the first time?

Does any of the power-on self-test process occur?

Does anything get displayed on the screen at all?

It sounds like the problem is either in the motherboard or
the power supply.
