    I can't figure out what happened. I turned the thing off ,moved it to
    the other side of the room and now there's no video.I hooked up the
    monitor to my lap top and it works fine. When you turn on the monitor
    if it's not hooked up to the machine I get a message Check video
    cables. Then when I hook it up to the PC the screen comes up
    blank.There are no add on cards in the tower so I believe the on board
    video took a dump. I can't get into the bios cause I have no picture.
    Any ideas or tips would be deeply appreciated

    Well I fixed it. Tried the reseating but didn't make any difference.
    Did notice that the CPU core was blue like steel that's lost it's
    temper so swapped it out with a Celeron 633 from a dead
    emachine,sucker booted right up. I shut it down and rebooted 3 times
    then defraged and left it running for 24 hours to see if it would stay
