If, when you first turn on the power, you hear the hard drive spinning or possibly a beep, see any of the other lights briefly flash, or passably hear the fan start then the likely cause is the video.
If it's not your monitor it could be your video card.
a) TURN OFF THE SWITCH AND REMOVE THE POWER CORD (either from the computer or the wall).
b) Open the case and reseat the card. That means that you will have to remove the video cable, remove the screw that holds the card in place. Pull up "gently but firmly"
c) Once the card comes out carefully reinstall the card into the same slot. Use your eyes to be sure it's lined up squarely and push it in. It should be clear to you when it's seated. It might take slight wiggle to get it in, this is normal.
d) Put the securing screw back in, close the case up and reconnect all cables and the power.
If on the other hand when you turn on the power switch you don't hear any or see any other lights. The first suspect would be the Power Supply.
