I tried disconnecting all cables including power cable and holding power button for 30 secs and then restarting but the problem persists. The fan starts up but the screen does not and the pc makes no beeps. Any advice on how to get it going?

Hello Ric66: What's is holding start button 30 sec stuff. Stop doing that does nothing but destroys computer. It is not a diesel truck. Just turn on computer press and hold f8 key. Now you are in save mode move your arrow keys select save mode with networking. Now open up HP Assisant click maintain then click on tune up and check mark everything and enabled microsoft defragmeter and run it. I had you open it in safe mode with networking in case you needed futher assistant. Perform this task it is not a bad Ideal to scan your computer for malware and viruses. Now llet tune complete close all open windows and restart computer. If for some unkown reason the computer does not start up normal. Then press F8 again safe mode this time you are going to perform a back date recovery open up recovery choose restore to earlier point of time. Yes there is a short waiting period between Windows 7 and logon screen with black screen it is normal. That your start up is corrupted and defragmeter will take care of it. That is why you should scheduled PC tune ups.
