Exclamation Need Expert Help Please

Hi. My parents recently gave me there old computer for free and said i can do watever i want with it. This wont be my primary computer but i jsut wanna get it working so it works. There isnt much i know about it so i can find how to fix it. But first you must know the problem. I turn it on, all fans roaring but the monitor just says "no distplay" or somthing like that (same thing happends wen the monitor isnt plugged in. They took it to a computer shot tryping to get it fixed and teh ppl added a new 40gb samsung HHD drive. So i should have to install windows as if it was a jsut build computer. I Tried installing the Xp Pro but nothing even changed but for some sounds from the Optical drive. I have tried puting a different vid card in to see if that was the problem still nothing changed. So i dont know if the motherboard just completly doesnt work, or the prosessor isnt even prosessing or wat. But if you can hep me in anayway i would apreciate it. Or atleast tell me wher to find the dam manufactoro of the MOBO and the serial number
Thanx

No offense... but just pics will not really help. How old is this puppy? From the label on the front of the comp, I think it's either a pent. 3 or pent. 2., with windows 95 or 98. Did you try adding a stick of ram? That comp looks pretty old to be running xp pro. No offense, but you're prolly gonna be spending more to get this thing fixed than you could getting a new comp altogether. But if you still want this comp, let me know.

Well, if the monitor was broken, it would probably not say "no signal or input"

If one of the pin on the cable for the monitor was broke or there is a short in the monitro cable it wont get a signal..

Yeah, but it wouldn't fit in the connector. But yeah, I'll give you credit. Did you try a difference monitor?
