If the green light is not glowing in the tower check the status of the light on the back of the tower where the power cable goes.
If there is no light in the back of the tower than it might be an issue with the wall jack or surge protector so try connecting the power cable to a different jack and see what happens. if it remains the same than try with a different power cable and check.

If the light is glowing on the back of the tower but there is no light in the front than it may happen the power supply of the pc might have failed. try to open the tower reseat the RAM cards, reseat the Harddrive cables as wells as try to reseat the cables of the power supply. if the light on the back flickers and goes away than it might be a faulty motherboard. So do a Motherboard test by turning on the pc without the RAM cards, if the motherboard is fine you will hear beeping noise if not than motherboard is faulty.

It could be the Monitor, the VGA adapter, or the PC itself. If you power on the monitor without anything connected to it, do you ever see anything on the display?

If not, it is probably the Monitor. If yes, it is likely the vga adapter and/or PC.
