  1. I have a compaq Presario desktop (AMD K6 processor). When I switched on the computer, fans are running and I can see lights blinking at CD/Keyboards terminals.Monitor light just blinks as if no connection to computer. It is not even doing Power on Self Test. Two days back when it happened, I kept it on for 3 hours. Then after that when I tried it started doing POST and booting. CMOS battery is fine. This time I kept it on one full night. No result so far.

    Well it could have something to do with your video card, especially since you see the keyboard blinking and the monitor looking like it has no connection. I would suggest opening the case and taking out your vid card and reseating it, to make sure it still has a good connection.
