    Try removing ram, hard disk and disk drive from the motherboard and then try starting your PC. If it works then there is problem with ram or HD. Or else simply clean their ports and plug them back.

    I had this problem before with my laptop. My daughter spilt coffee over it! Anyway I got it to work for a few days then the screen went black -after some investigation i found out it was the Graphics card that had gone. Could be thats whats wrong with yours - i decided just to buy a new one rather than pay to have a new graphics card put in.

    Check cable connections ( from Video card to monitor)
    Check power connections ( of monitor)
    Try to open your PC and reseat the RAM and video card (make sure to unplug PC first)
    Verify if monitor is working by connecting it to another PC

    I have this problem before, at first my monitor display went chaotic then after awhile it turned black. I have the monitor check using another CPU and it's working the graphic card is busted. I end up buying another graphic card.

    I can be caused by both your graphic card or your motherboard. I have got something like this, I found that my graphic card was ok but my pci express slot at my motherboard was broken. Try to swap you card with another usable one or try to change to slot.

    HI guys....

    Thanks for your valuable suggestions.

    I have fixed the problem.

    It was a RAM related issue.

    Maybe your monitor plug is loose or your computer has started. Press the NUM LOCK key and CAPS LOCK key a few times. If lights go on and off, your computer did boot up. If not your computer is really in trouble. Tru to unplug the computer and RESEAT the RAM modules then try to restart the system.

    shut down the computer first and then open computer case and open the RAM
    then clean the connectors and then set it up. Then shut the computer on and you will see
    everything is ok.

    1. examine the RAM is seated
    2. Try any other RAM
    3. still the same issue examine the video or video card , if any
    4. if no video card and issue stiil changing it clear your CMOS by removing battery
    5. still issue , examine the brand heat sink
    6. still issue then suggesting checking mother board and processor

    At first check your cable,
    if it is ok, check the ram and clean it and also the ram slot.
