Test computer on another monitor to eliminate graphics card problem If it works ok, suspect graphics card failing If it does not, check connections between card and monitor If tight, assume an internal fault in the monitor, needs repair or replacement
If there is no display on the monitor, then your computer is not sending a video signal to the monitor. This could be caused by a bad video card or some other hardware problem. I would open the case and disconnect all the devices (hard drive, CD, etc. Leave only the CPU, memory, and video connected. You could leave the keyboard and mouse connected too. If your computer then starts, you can start to add devices (after turning the computer off) one at a time. If this doesn't work, then you are looking at replacing the motherboard or just the video card if that is possible.
You seem to have two problems here: The power button and the video connection.
It should take 4 seconds of continuously holding the power button in for the PC to shut off, unless the settings under Power Saving say that doing this action should have a different outcome. Check your settings. If all is correct and you still cannot turn the machine off, you may have a deffective toggle switch. This is something you can get at Radio Shack or other electronics store.
Regarding the video connection: There's a set of buttons on most monitors where you can choose the input source. Your monitor has probably been set inadvertently to receive a DVI signal while it's connected via a VGA cable, or vice versa.
