Mitsuman, and guest, check your power supply. Sounds like a voltage rail is weak or has gone south for the winter. Electrolytic capacitors break down, and there was a rash of bad capacitors from a capacitor maker. Seems they had stolen receipe for the electrolytic paste, and it developed gas after a time. The little cans popped open from the gas! lol!

If the motherboard came with on-board video and you have a black screen, the only thing you can check is the monitor itself by swapping the monitor out with one you know works. If you do this and still have a black screen, then the problem is the on-board video. There is no way to repair that problem as it is built into the motherboard. If you put a separate video card in and still have black screen, this happens because you have to change a setting in the computer's BIOS for the computer to know it has to use the video card you put in instead of the on-board video. Unfortunately, you cannot change the BIOS setting without seeing what you are doing on the screen (that does not work). It's time to buy a new computer. Replacing motherboards is hardly worth the cost -- and next time do not get a computer with an on-board video (other on-board components are fine).
