When turned ON, nothing appears on the monitor.

On power "OFF", check your video card and memory cards by re-inserting it into the slot. Be careful though if you haven't done this before. Also check if the CPU fan is working well. It might also be an overheating cpu problem.

Monitor screen is black but computer seems to work


That is not enough info, please provide more info so people can understand the issue better. For example, describe what you do and see step by step. When you turn on the machine, after a few seconds it powers on, it should run Power-On-Self-Test (POST) which will end with a beep telling you everything was OK. If you do not hear any beep, the problem is likely to be inside the case, bad video card, motherboard, CPU, etc. Typically bad RAM or Video card will cause a series of quick or long beeps (different for each motherboard) to indicate where the problem is. Bad CPU generally do not generate a beep code and most motherboards also do not give out a beep for motherboard issues, naturally.

If you hear that beep but see absolutely nothing on the screen from the moment you turn it on, then check to see if the status indicator light (assuming it has one) changes color or not:

A) If the light on the monitor changes from red/amber to blue/green but you see nothing on the screen then either the video resolution and/or refresh rate is unsupported, video drivers are faulty or monitor itself is bad.
B) If the light goes back to red/amber or stays that way from get-go, then there is no connection, monitor cable is loose at either end or bad/supported.
C) One other possibility would be the input selection on the monitor which is set to "Auto" by default but if it was manually changed to DVI for example and you are now using a HDMI cable, monitor would not automatically change this setting thus not receiving the signal from the video card. You can check this using the menu buttons on the monitor itself.

This is a generic troubleshooting ideas I just shared, more details you can provide, the better people will be able to assist you.

I turn computer on blue light on computer tower comes on monitor power **** turns blue and the on screen message going into power save mode and then nothing change motherboard battery and took out graphic...


Short of it being something simple like your monitor cable is unplugged, the more likely problem is that there's a fault on your motherboard or graphics card.
You should have an internal speaker connected to your motherboard, it should be giving beeps depending on what the problem is. If everything is ok then there should be a single beep.
If you are not hearing anything try removing your RAM and boot up, you should get lots of loud beeps, if you hear nothing then it's likely your motherboard is faulty.

you semm have replaced any component in your motherboard eccept two, monitor and motherboard itself. try to put your new component in similar mother board begining with cpu ram vga, and put in output in same monitor (you must be hure that second motherboard is working) if nothing is coming try second monitor for output, if nothing is coming and have maybe beeps, one of your component that you have puted is defektive so try to replace them one by one. is not necesary to buy new component just try in other friend eith his parts afterthat if you finded defekyive component replace it in *********** board, (or if *********** board is defektive you must replace him, or monitor too if the problem is in monitor)
