I guess the VGA port is dead, ?
most old PC had 2 ports, 1 on the card, one on the main chassis rear . if the card GPU vga is present only it works.
if you remove the GPU the main VGA port is live.
I cant see rear of your PC and seeing MATTERS.
the common failures are:
RTC coin cell dead.
HDD bad, (most are this old)
and PSU bad.
in that order.

SOURCE: Replace CD-Rom Drive
solution: open front blue magnetic case door, look on either side of the power button, there are finger holes in the other blue cover.
lift out from bottom to top. this cover comes off, not the whole
case. inside find tabs next to cd drive, squeeze and pull out. note: the side sliders were they come out, they will come off the
cd drive when removed. it is easier to replace the top drive by removing the bottom drive, put in the top half way, then put bottom back in half way and slide them in together.
voice of experience. hope this helps

Do you have Vista? If so, you should contact HP directly. I had the same problem which occured 3 months after my warranty ran out. I called HP and was told(after they tried to sell me another laptop) that I installed the wrong antivirus program but since I never used my warranty, they would do me a BIG favor and fix it for free. I then waited 14 days for my new laptop and was very happy when it was returned only to find out 3 months later that there is a RECALL for HP laptops with the Vista program that was a MANUFACTURERS defect. THEY HAVE TO FIX IT AND FOR FREE!!!!! I hope this helps you. Good luck.

See the panel on the side of the DVD Drive? remove that by lifting it backwards, it has a black button on top of it, remove it and now you have access to the screws on the side of the DVD drive, after unscrewing there's a button on the opposite side, push it sideways to unlock the drive and push the DVD drive out of the casing. Hope you figure it out.

most times i have seen amber light, if it is where the pwr light is on front of tower means ur mother board might be fried. check capacitors one by one and make sure none are extended or leaking. dell has had this issue before when they sent out a bad batch of capacitors. may last it job was mostly issues with this. good luck.

Test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle of restarting or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive power and data cables IDE SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your dvd\cd floppy drives have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
computers need power and data to travel through every working device to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
even something as small as a faulty electrical or fan lead can cause you problems
motherboard and a Hard Drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail.
Check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working
also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in.
Hope this helps.
