    Ok...When I turn on her Dell 2400, with onboard graphics...the windows XP home screen comes on..and shows the loading bar thing at the bottom. Once that screen goes away, NOTHING else...I can hear windows load up like the little music it plays ya know?! So its loading up, but after the windows XP screen, the monitor is just black.

    I tried putting in a new Video card, but the computer wouldnt run off of it..I looked in setup options and told the video signal to be auto and all..wouldnt work.

    Any help appreciated!

    If your board has on board graphics, you need to disable it in the BIOS if you want to use a better graphic card.

    probably a driver problem. as the computer starts up, just before the windows xp screen, tap f8 a few times till the safemode and stuff options come up. then select vga mode. if it starts up, you can then reinstall teh drivers.

    I never posted a fix, but I never claimed I was "very good with hardware" either

    bigdawg, google is your friend

    in my experience googling for the exact error brings up a fix 95% of the time.
