Remove the hard drive and RAM. See what it does. It should go into BIOS and complain. If it doesn't you have a motherboard issue as it won't POST.

Monitor losing brightness

Well it does sound like your monitor is going to die soon. You'll just need to replace it, trying to fix a 7yr old monitor is exactly worth it. Fixing it would be costly so you may as well buy a new one.not sure what you mean by integrated with drive unit. some elaborating would help :D

Trying to upgrade cpu.

Here's a direct link to the service manual of the NetVista 8303-21A:

On page 13 of this manual:
Microprocessor (varies by model type): Intel® Pentium® 4 processor with 256 KB or 512 KB of internal L2 cache memory and Intel NetBurst™ micro-architecture.

It seems that the computer's motherboard does not support Intel P4 processors with more than 512 KB of internal L2 cache. That's why your P4 2.8GHz/1M/533 Prescott processor did not work.
You will have to either buy another processor with 512 KB L2 cache, or replace your motherboard with one which supports the new processor.

Let me know this didn't help you out or if you need more info.

IBM NetVista 6578-RBG Windows XP hanging

It seems, that you should replace motherboard, I've seen this kind of problems in my office, after year or two you won't be able to turn it on at all. In my opinion, it's bad quality capacitor on motherboard.
Any way there is little chance that it cold be bad PSU, but it's really small chance.
