I can't work out how to solve a problem I am having with my computer.

When I try to turn it on, the power button on both the tower and the monitor are both on but the monitor remains blank. There is no problem with the monitor as I have tried it on a different computer, nor is there a problem with the cables as I have bought new ones and the problem persists.

Is there anything else I could try?

I am using a HP Pavilion w1000 and a Samsung SyncMaster710v if that helps at all.

There are several reasons why a PC will not give a display to a monitor, and they are usually down to a fault with the tower. In order to narrow this down, we need to establish what the PC is doing. When you turn it on what happens? Do you get any lights, any beeps, can you hear the fans - if so do they sound normal?

a common thing to do is check the INSIDE of your computer. even dust buildup can mess up or even kill a computer, hey its happened to me!! open your computer, dust it out with air-in-a-can, then if nothing works still maybe dust is in one of the connections, so remove and re-seat all components of the computer. this means unplugging and plugging back in your hard disk, ram, power supply cable, and pci cards. let me know what happens and how dusty it was! mine was an hp too!

Don't wish to alarm you but I've just had exactly the same problem and it turned out that my motherboard & processer were damaged due to overheating problems.

Anyhow, the experience has taught me a few lessons.

Good luck!
