Thats just a desktop... No fancy names or such.

Just get any monitor and use it... You do know yoiu need to plug one into it right...

I bet if you add a keyboard, you'll get everything going... The POST check error, probably is keeping the system from continuing to boot.

Because without the keyboard the computer won't startup!

The BIOS needs to have the keyboard or it can't go to step 2 of checking for problems as it boots up. No strep 3 means no step final.. means no turn on for you...

It's like asking why your car won't start with no gas in the tank... You need all parts to start.

Clearing the cmos in the bios type won't work, as it is hard coded, as shown in the other post a keyboard is needed.

Maybe your PC will boot without a keyboard, but not all PC's work the same to start up. That's why there are so many different bios configurations.

Instead of starting an arguement maybe you should just wait and see what happens. Maybe you'll find out you've learned something new
