Check the gfx card is secure. Are the fans coming on?

Lights but no screen is usually indicative of:
Bad/dead gfx card
Monitor plugged into wrong port (particularly if you have inboard graphics and a dedicated gfx card)

The fans  are spinning. I even removed my second graphics and used the built in one but nothing.

only other thoughts are bios jumpers in wrong position (the one used to reset bios settings) - i've not had any other types of failure that characterise like that otherwise

you got the case speaker plugged into the motherboard? is it doing any sequence of beeps? (assuming the mobo still has a speaker port)

power supply might have an issue as well!!!!   or even faulty RAM...

You nailed it  Castro!!!

l had three memory modules, 2 gig each. One of them have died and it was stopping proper booting. l had to do try and error until l got the dead since l didnt have case speakers.

Thank you.
