    Do you see any lights on? 
    The monitor should have an orange light if in stand-by mode or green if on. The Computer Tower should have some sort of lights, as well as the num lock, caps lock, and scroll lock buttons on the keyboard should light up when it is turned on.

Hp 300 12z. Desktop i relocated and plugged everything back in. I push power button and the fans start to run however after 45 seconds they shut off and screen goes black. What could be wrong.

When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

Shut down with ''ckdsk scan to run on next reboot''. Now it runs the black screen and the windows screen pops up and shuts down right away. It goes back to the black start up screnn and repeats forever.

Your HD's probably bought it, but you can always try to read from it later after you reinstall to a new hard drive or drive array (striped SATA is fast!)

Screen seems to be not working properly

try using a different monitor, borrow one if you have to, if the monitor works on your computer, then it simply means you need a new monitor. As far as the computer shutting down, it may be recording the bad monitor as an error in the loading process and automatically shutting down.

Screen goes black as if it shut off but i can still hear it running.

Most newer computer have energy saving features that turn off the monitor, hard drives and various other components after a designated period of time.

Open the panel where you change the screensaver. At the bottom of that should be a box that says "Change power settings". In that box click the power settings link and that will open the power control panel. You can then use the contols in there to adjust the settings to how you like them. you can set it to power down after 5 minutes or never depending on what you feel is apropriate.

Hope this helps

My computer crashed and now the monitor goes into power save mode

You said that you hear a series of beeps, if you hear this kind of sounds maybe there is a loose connection from the CPU. Try to remove the Memory and put it back again.
