try takeing out the video card and checking the connections...
if it has intigrated graphics as well try that and if it works...

>it dose not seem to be booting though so i seem to think your power supply is bad... some computers will go to a safe mode when power i not good... see if the fan starts turning or if its full of dust or relly hot... when my old hp did this i just had to fallow the big black marks around the back...
