It could be one of two things, either your monitor is bad or the video card is bad. Try taken connecting your monitor to a different computer. If the monitor works then it the video card. You could just purchase a new video card and put in and it should work

You could try to connect a different, working, monitor first. Should this not work, then you can be fairly sure that your monitor is good, but the problem lies either with your motherboard or just the integrated video circuitry on it. That being said, there's usually an option of installing an auxiliary video card on the motherboard expansion slots - preferably an AGP or PCI-X16 graphics card. Should you care to provide me the service code number for the tower, I can check with Dell to see which type card can be installed on this motherboard. Thanks!

The pattern of the blinking can tell you a lot. if you can get the pattern and then reference the following site it can tell you the cause and some steps to remedy the situation.

Support Article This is a Dell Article that explains the various Blink Codes it covers the entire OptiPlex line, including all the changes that were made through the years.

Another option would be to print out the relevant portion of that page and keep it for future reference as well.

Installing a fresh operating system is a good option, and there might be a feature in the BIOS to restore the system to factory defaults. Information on how to do this:

Windows XP: Dell PC Restore

Using PC Restore:

1. Turn on the computer.

During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top
of the screen.

2. Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press <Ctrl><F11>.
If you do not press <Ctrl><F11> in time, let the computer finish
starting, and then restart the computer again.

NOTICE: If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot.

3. Click Restore and click Confirm.
The restore process takes approximately 6 to 10 minutes to complete.

4. When prompted, click Finish to reboot the computer.

NOTE: Do not manually shut down the computer. Click Finish and let the computer
completely reboot.

5. When prompted, click Yes.

The computer restarts.

Because the computer is restored to its original
operating state, the screens that appear, such as the End User License
Agreement, are the same ones that appeared the first time the computer
was turned on.

6. Click Next.
The System Restore screen appears and the computer restarts.

7. After the computer restarts, click OK.
