Win XP system will not boot

I'm running Win XP, and the system will not boot. My monitor shows "no input sync." What causes this? How can it be fixed?

First things first: Check the cable connections. Try a different monitor cable. If that doesn't fix the problem, try the monitor on a different computer, assuming that you have another computer to test it on. The last resort is to replace your video adapter.
