It sounds like you are encountering a situation where your Windows Vista desktop is booting up, but you are not getting any display on the screen despite trying different cables, monitors, and even reinstalling Vista from the disk.

Here are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot this issue further:

1. Check Monitor and Connections:
- Ensure that the monitor is powered on.
- Double-check that the video cables (VGA, DVI, HDMI, etc.) are securely connected to both the monitor and the desktop.
- Try using a different cable or port on the graphics card or motherboard.

2. Hardware Troubleshooting:
- If possible, test the monitor with another computer to verify that it is functioning correctly.
- Check the graphics card or integrated graphics on the motherboard. Make sure it is seated properly in the slot.

3. BIOS Settings:
- If you can access the BIOS settings, check if the primary display adapter is set correctly (e.g., PCIe or onboard graphics).

4. Safe Mode:
- Try booting the computer into Safe Mode. This can help determine if the issue lies with a driver or software conflict.

5. Hardware Diagnostics:
- Run hardware diagnostics (if available) to check for any hardware failures.

6. Reset CMOS:
- Resetting the CMOS settings can sometimes resolve display issues. Refer to your motherboard manual for instructions on how to do this.

7. External Display:
- If available, try connecting the desktop to an external display to see if you get any output.

8. Professional Help:
- If none of the above steps work, it might be worth seeking assistance from a professional technician who can diagnose and repair the issue.

These steps should help you diagnose and potentially resolve the display issue on your Windows Vista desktop. Let me know if you need further assistance or additional guidance!
