Qu: Is the boot screen coming up or do you have a blank display, if blank then perhaps your graphics card has failed.
Ans: Blank. I actually got the compu to boot up this morning and saw the graphic card check run, then compu went blank. Afterwards the comp went back to not working. So will have to try to buy another graphics card to try this.
Qu. Is the fan running on your processor ?.
Qu. Have you tried a known to be good stick of ram in place of your original (or that the original is properly seated) ?
Ans: Nope, guess i should try this next.
Qu.Have you checked all your connections inside the pc to make sure they are secure. ?
Ans: not really too hot on what goes where so have pushed things tighter, but if lead is missing would not know.
Qu. Have you upgraded something prior to this problem starting or did it just occur out of the blue. ?
Ans: Given the compu from friend who left the country, probably should ask him this.
Well thanks very much for you helpful insights.

I will keep you posted.
