We may need more details:
it may not hurt to check the obvios first: is your monitor data cable connected properly to your tower?... is your power cable connected? is the monitor on??
if screen is on but it's just black the simple possible causes are:
1. your brigtness settings are all the way down... adjust with bottons on your monitor
2. your monitor may be going bad... try to test the monitor on a known good pc
3. your video adapter/controller may be bad... borrow another monitor and test to see if you get a picture.

if after doing 1,2 and 3.. .3 is what you see as the cause, you may have to replace your video adapter.. a. if it's the one that came with computer... get/replace the video card.
if replacing video card is not working for you... try to check memory

    My laptop came on but my screen is black. I can hear my coputer on but my screen is staying black.

    Here are some discrete steps you shall also take besides fixing your Windows 7 registry which is inevitable for safer and stable computing:
    * Conduct an antivirus and antimalware scan. Fixing for malwares after a registry scan gives an extra protection to the PC and saves PCs from lots of dangerous infections.
    * Start Windows 7 in safe mode and restore your PC/system to the previous date after which you received the Windows 7 updates. It is believed that some updates may be behind these screen issues in Windows 7.
    * Adjust your display settings since the wrong settings may also cause the Windows 7 black screen also called the blank screen. You can do this by starting Windows in safe mode.
    Follow all the guidelines and start from registry repairing scan for Windows 7 to fix Windows 7 black screen.use registry cleaner reg in out to solve the issue

    My hp pavilion 513n has completely stopped working! I need help!

    Start the computer, and keep pressing F8 until you get a "boot" menu -- white text on a black screen.
    Select "safe mode with command-line", and see if Windows will start.
    If it does, enter 'CHKDSK C: /F' to get Windows to check the integrity of the file-system.

    Then, find a friend with a genuine Microsoft Windows XP CD-ROM. Boot from that disk, and choose "repair", and see if the boot-process can "repair" your installed copy.
