It totally sounds like the backlight is toasted. If that is the case you will have to replace them. Normally if the power inverter is shot, the monitor will power up briefly at least and then shut off. If you can use a flash light and see some sort of image on the screen you know that your VGA chipset works however your backlight(s) are burnt out. If not, more than likely your power supply (power inverter chipset) is broken and needs to be replaced..

If the light is not even coming onto the monitor it sounds like it does not have power. Be sure everything is plugged in all the way. All monitors that I've seen show Green or Orange lights on the Power Button.
