Default PC Problems

Hey, i'v got a seriosly old dell box here. I *aquired* it for free (since it was *broken* )

The *broken* problem is that everything runs fine. PC starts up, no BIOS beeps or anything like that.

However there seams to be no output to the display. I'v tried mutiple moniters and VGA cables with no apparent luck.

I'm begining to the gfx card here. I'm also getting an orange light on the mobo which you might want to check out.

Suggestions?

Follow Up

Still no luck. Mobo ID is E139761, still getting the orange light.

I'v tried removing the PCI modem, CMOS batt, and both together. The moniter works fine as I have just tested it.

Anyone any futher suggestions?

Don't have one handy to try atm, took the RAM out and recieved no BIOS beeps, also done a little google searching, turns out the orange light is bad news. Apparently due to various issues with the PSU it's messed up the mobo.
Cheers
