You can hear the boot chime but no display on screen.
Is the mobo dead?
It could be. It could also be a monitor problem or a monitor cable problem.
No, the chime occurs after the Power-On-Self-Test has passed. So the mobo isn't completely dead, although there could be a problem with the onboard video.
In any case, it sounds like a video problem, I'd check the monitor and cable connections first, and test the monitor on another computer if you have one.
If it's a hard drive model, do you hear the hard drive booting up the OS?
It's a computer on ebay
Can hear chime
Can hear hard drive spin
Do not hear fan

Could bad RAM or battery cause this?
