    When I plug in the cables to my Windows XP I got a No signal on the monitor while the XP is running . I know the monitor works because I used it on my other XP. Could it be the power supply getting bad or is it be something else? and Graphic Card is good

    also, you say it worked on a different xp, but how long ago? take a monitor that works now and see if it will work, if not it is the monitor.

    also if this is a desktop, then ensure that the power to the tower is on.

    since you say you can hear the fans and stuff, it could be the graphics card, if it was the power supply the pc would not come on at all.

    Machine model that doesn't work would be helpful too. Onboard graphics card/PCI, VGA/HDMI/DVI missing a lot of info that would help us help you.

    Still not much to go on. I see you have an HP desktop but don't know the model. You haven't replied on whether it is VGA, HDMI or DVI. Could be a faulty cable, try swapping the video cable from the working one with the non-working one.
