This is vague, there might be 2 reasons why the monitor stays blank, it's either that the monitor is faulty or the computer tower doesn't POST.
If the problem is with the monitor:
- Disconnect the monitor from the computer tower with the computer turned on, check if you see anything on the screen as a sign that it's working, there's no problem with the monitor (If it's completely blank still)
- Try to reset the monitor to factory default settings
If the problem is with the computer tower
- Disconnect all the connection from the back of the computer tower
- Press the power button of the computer tower for 15 seconds to drain the remaining power
- Reconnect the monitor cable and the power cable then start the computer, (If it turned on, it means that the problem is with one of the devices connected at the back of the computer, all you have to do is to check it one-by-one) (If it didn't turn on the computer)
- Reset the CMOS battery
- Open the computer tower and reseat/remove the video card (VGA or PCI-E or any device in the PCI slot) then turn on the computer (If this didn't fix the problem)
- Reseat/remove the hard drive, then turn on the computer (If this didn't fix the problem)
- Reseat/remove the memory chips. If you have 1 or more memory chips, remove them all and try to test them one-by-one to each slot and turn on the computer (If it didn't resolve the issue).
- Reseat the CPU and turn on the computer
- Reseat the power cord from the power supply to your motherboard and then try to test the computer again.
- If all else fails, the problem might be with the motherboard and the power supply.
(Note: if you see big amount of dust, try to clean it thoroughly)
