Make sure you are set up for correct monitor. If keyboard lights flash and HD beeps, but no picture, you may have an incorrect monitor setup. In BIOS, make sure you are set for proper internal/external video, and be sure to plug into right port.
I would remove the access panel to get to the inside where the power cord plugs in, maybe it just needs to be pushed back into place. Once you can get your pictures off, take the PC to Goodwill. Old computer are not worth the repair. These days you can get a new desktop PC for under $500.
the internet cord can only fit in one place (assuming you are broadband)
right click on my computer

if it says
L(picture) whatever make or model network adapter
and a yellow (!) next to it you have a driver problem, search and reinstall the driver.
If you have installed the ethernet card driver you just need to unplug both power cords on your modem and your router. Then plug in back your modem first and wait 1 minute. After 1 min. put the power back on your router. Wait 1 minute to make sure it talks with your modem. Try accessing internet after that and if it doesn't work, you can try restarting your computer.
If nothing works after doing this. Maybe you have a bad or missing driver.
Plug a different computer into your cable-modem or DSL-modem, to see if that computer can successfully use the modem to access the Internet.
Try a different Ethernet-cable between your modem and your computer, to see if that fixes anything.
Click Control Panel
Click Network Connections
Under the "Local Area Connection" icon, do you see "network cable unplugged", or "disabled" ?
If so, connect the cable, or right-mouse-click on the icon, and choose "enable".
