HP Vectra VE 5/166 mmx Series3

I have a HP Vectra VE 5/166 mmx Series3. The problem I am having is I turn on the computer and the screen does not turn on the light stays amber.  How do I locate the video card to see if that is the problem.  I was having trouble with computer earlier in the week and was trying to run DEFRAG when the computer would just restart on its own when in DOS and trying DEFRAG.  Can someone help me out.  Thanks

First can you get into setup F2 before windows loads this will tell us if you have a failure of some part. Take the case off and see if you have some lose memory or other connectors inside . Is this a desktop or a minitower?

Memory issue!
