Problems starting up... fan and on off and on and off and

I am trying to iagnose a problem with my sister's PC (formerly mine). It is a Dell Inspiron from about 2009, running Vista.

Upon start up the fans all turn on, and then off, and then on, and then off, and then the third time they stay on, the hard drive seems to kick on and the fans settle down to normal speed but no signal is being sent to the monitor.

I took a video.

Any ideas?
