  1. Hello all,

    When I press my computers "on" button I don't see my HP blue normal boot screen that goes away and proceeds to the loading of XP.

    There is nothing on my screen either as in "no input" accoding to my monitor.

    The sounds my computer makes are the same but I can't see anything.

    Ps I can still open the cd and DVD drive and I'll check to see if any USB accesories are lit up.

    Please help me...

    This problem may be that the RAM Stick is no well plug in or is damage. I got that problem on my old PC. Try opening your PC, removing the RAM and then plugging it. Then Power on and if it still don't work then try to change the slot.

    I tried that but same problem.

    To add some info the last time the machine was running was when it crashed at a bluescreen and said "bugcode_USB_driver" and never stopped debugging after 10 mins. so I I held the power button untill it turned off. Now shows nothing on my monitor and can't even boot of get a boot menu.

    What can I do?
