Buy a dianostics card, and find out if its the RAM, CPU, OR Motherboard.
(sounds like a ram or CPU problem though)
if you have more than one stick of ram in the system, take one out, and power it up, if still not response, to the other stick out, and put the stick you took out the first time, and put it back in.

Turn off power, unplug, hold power button for 30 seconds, take out memory, or if you have more than one stick only take all but 1, plug the power back in and start the computer. If a screen pops up that bios has changed press F2 to continue once computer is completly loaded click start, shut sown, unplug power cord again, hold power button 30 seconds, insert other memory and restart
Actually, the monitor is fine. The problem is that the computer isn't booting. The power comes on and the fans spin, but the system board isn't starting. Try reseating the memory modules in their sockets and clearing the CMOS memory using the jumper on the system board. If the problem continues, try another power supply. Finally you may need to replace the system board.
Is there an on off switch on the back out the computer next to the main power socket? If so move it to the on position.
Check the mains lead and make sure it is firmly inserted in the socket.
When you press the front panel on button and it doosn't boot up and there is no light indicating power, then you have a faulty switch mode power supply.
Remove the switch mode power supply and replace it with a new one with the same wattage or greater wattage.
try replacing your ram.if your ram is bad you wont get no picture on your monitor but your puter will start.2 if you have a video card turn off you puter for a few minutes and plug your monitor to your original display.
Check all power cables plugged into M/board if these are correct remove all hard ware hard drives / cd player and anything else except for video and memory and test to see if it boots. If it does, one of the removed hardware is faulty if it does not then you have M/board failure
There could be a number of causes. Do you hear any beeps when the computer starts up?
Try seating all the chips in the motherboard. That means, apply pressure to each individual chip on the motherboard with your finger or thumb. The goal is to make sure each chip is securely attached to the board.
Sometimes, heat or new h/w installs partially "pop" some of the chips out of the motherboard - causing the circuitry to be disconnected...
