Do you have on board Video?
Yes the screen goes black and the computer stays on...no video. I have an on board Video card. I've had to replace a number of parts to the computer and to be completely honest I can't remember the makes and models of the new pieces. I'll have to open it back up and find out for sure. However, the original pieces are...

ALBATRON GEFORCE 6800 LE 128MB
GIGABYTE K8NS NFORCE3 754 GA-K8NS
MAXTOR 80GB 7200RPM ATA133 HD

BLACK TURBO X-INFINITY / WINDOW
BLACK 16X DVD/52X32X52 CDRW COMBO
BLACK MITSUMI 1.44MB FLOPPY

I replaced the PSU about a year after purchase and both sticks of RAM about 2 years after.
