Re: wont find monitor
Did this happen suddenly, or have you installed any new hardware?
Try a different monitor.
If you have new hardware, remove it.
Your onboard video could have gone out, try a pci video card.
Remove all pci cards and try booting.
Try a different RAM module if available.
If none of these seem to work, your cpu or more likely your motherboard is failing.

If you say the OS is loading, and when the time it goes to desktop it doesn't display. So you have to re-install again your OS because your computer was corrupted either by virus or it was accidentally removed or deleted.
Unplug all of your RAM, expansion cards and IDE/SATA devices. Leave only the processor and the CPU/heatsink plugged in, now try turning it on. If it boots, you should get a ram error, which is normal. If it doesn't boot, either the board, processor, or power supply is bad. Next, reinstall the RAM and start it up again. If it boots again, keep adding parts until you find the one that is causing the problem.
Reset the BIOS Password, Remove the CMOS (Coin-cell) Battery from the
motherboard for five minutes and restart the system. This will load the
factory default settings and the password would be gone.
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!
Check your hard drive for viruses. If you are running a version of Windows, boot to safe mode and run an anti-virus program. Scan the whole hard drive. If you do not have any anti-virus program, download or get one and scan the computer.
