Check RAM first, Then if that is good the problem is most likely the motherboard, A windows pc will boot and display without graphics specific drivers installed, but only if the motherboard is working. If the ram is good and you can give more info, Does the monitor display the BIOS post screen and booting. ( The name of the mobo and the physical drives in the machine.)
