Might be the video/display adapter card has gone bad or needs to be reseated

Here are some tips:

1-) Monitor Power light stays orange the monitor is not getting any signals from the pc Change the cables, re-seat the video card and try again.

2-) Monitor power light is green but nothing shows on the screen Something is not hooked correctly in the pc The computer is not even starting POST check all components in the system Make sure fans are plugged in and that the cpu is inserted into the board correctly.

3-) several beeps sound and the monitor power light is green There is some error occuring which is being reported by the beeps look in the motherboard manual and look at the beep error codes Typically, the beeps will be "long" and "short".
