I have an old Windows XP Pro (HP) desktop computer that I wanted to fire up and see what was on it. When I turn on the power the fans start blowing hard but I cannot get anything to show up on the monitor. Can't even see the boot options on the screen like ESC or F12. Can't see the HP logo come up either. Not sure if it is a video card issue or hard drive. Any ideas on what to try and get it going? I know that's not much info but I don't know where to begin. The fans blowing crazy is odd I would think.
Will the computer beep? Count them and google for it. Can be video, cpu, mainboard
