My hpw1907 monitor says no input and wont display anything. The cpu also makes 1 beeping noise that last 1 second nd doesnt come back

A one second beep from the computer is standard for a proper boot.
Do you have a TV that you can plug your computer into to see if it is posting video? That would be the easiest way to test if it is a computer or monitor thing.

Screen doesn't light up ! Green led is on for a few seconds and then gone ... ? Thanks for help .

When you turning on your computer and when you heard a 1 beep that means your computer is functioning, but 1 beep with no display that means you need to check you monitor or try to transfer your lcd monitor to other computer to check if your monitor is working.

My hp computer wont display picture and makes a beep noise when i turn it on

It should make one beep. That means it passed the self-test.
If there is nothing on the monitor (is the monitor light green or yellow?)
then the monitor is bad.
I suggest you try another monitor to be sure. Borrow one from a friend.
