- STR LED on boot

I'm having a problem booting up an old P3 machine. Everything turns
on, HDD, Fan, etc., but the monitor gives no response (black screen).
Initially the light on the monitor is green, then becomes amber after
about 2 or 3 seconds. It worked for me a couple days ago. Since then,
I've cleaned out dust (with pressurized air)... ever since, no screen.
I've made sure that all connections are secure, and i've also swapped
out video cards, still no luck.
I did notice, however, that the suspend to RAM (STR) LED is on
immediately when the machine powers up. I'm not a hardware guru, so
that may be normal... just an observation. I'd appreciate any help
anybody could provide...
Re: STR LED on boot
That LED is probably always on so long as you have 5VSB
coming from the PSU (which on an ATX, means it's plugged
into a live wall outlet, nothing more).
So the ONLY thing you had changed was blowing it out with
the air? If so, recheck all cables, other mechanical
connections, and while unplugged from AC, pull the battery
out for 10 minutes.
