I too agree, taking cpu off can be to do with the screen... I can suggest try taking it off again.. make sure you place it in by the arrow pointing match.. and place in by side, don't just put it in, you need to insert it correct to avoid breaking the pins, so make sure you put it back in side ways, like a dominoes falling.. just try doing this.. possible can fix it

This problem occured before i even touched the cpu.

Just checked. VGA connector is fine.

1)take the PC completely apart, including removing the motherboard (but leave the CPU & RAM on the board)
2)Place motherboard on a flat, non conductive surface. If you still have the box the motherboard came in (if you built it) place the board on top of that box.
3)If not a self-build, put the board on top of a cardboard box of the right size, then,
4)Plug in the power supply to the right ports on the board, video card, etc. Do NOT connect the hard drive, CD/DVDRW drive or anything else at this point. Just the power to the mainboard
5)Plug in your video card, connect the monitor, ensure that the video card has it's power cord as well, if required.
6)Find the pins to turn on the system on the motherboard. Short them out with the end of a screwdriver (it's safe) to get to PC to turn on. Observe if the system starts up, or if the fans on the CPU/GPU just spin at full speed as they did inside the case
6a) If the fans spin at a really fast speed, unplug the power from the power supply and disconnect the PSU from the motherboard & video card
6b) Pull the CMOS battery from the motherboard and wait 10 minutes (5 is usually enough, 10 to be safe, your call)
6c) Leave the battery out, reconnect the power supply to the board, video card and attempt to turn on
6d) Does the system POST? Do you get any video? If not, issue is related to either the RAM, motherboard or CPU. Video card is a possibility at this point, but I doubt it
7) If the system DOES turn on, shut it off and add one component back to the system at a time (Hard drive, power on, if it works, shut it down and move on to the CDRW/DVDRW drive) Ignore any errors about the CMOS battery or BIOS date/time being incorrect, just continue
8) Once you get all of the components reconnected to the system, and it continues to turn on without issue, power it down and re-insert the CMOS battery
9) Turn the PC on again and save the BIOS settings (if it kept prompting you on startup in the prior steps that the BIOS wasn't correct)
10) Verify OS load (windows, etc). If you can get back into Windows, shut the PC down and re-build it inside the case, being careful to repeat the same power on / check cycle as you rebuild the system, so that if it happens again, you can identify which component is giving you issues.
11) If no issues upon successful rebuild, then celebrate. If not, find out what is shorting out or giving you issues. If you didn't get this far, and had to stop on the "6" step series, isolate the bad part and buy a replacement or ship the offending part off to RMA if still under warranty.
Thanks for the post!!! it has fixed my issue. I took the computer apart completely and put it back together. And it booted up fine. Not sure what the problem was since i didnt really follow your steps that indicate what the problem was. But taking it apart fixed it! Thanks again, now i gotta go to best buy and buy a hd to back up all my data just in case this happens again.

Awesome! We have problems like this at work sometimes, but we're just thankful that it works again after some diagnosing. You're doing good buying a backup drive. Hopefully you won't need to rely on it, but it never hurts to have it handy.

Have you tried switching the VGA cable ot a different one? Have you tried taking the monitor and hooking it up to another computer with the same VGA cable and new? If it doesnt turn on also on a working computer might be the monitor happened to me

I think you have Motherboard Problem..That is why your Monitor is not displaying...If you have any RAM problem ..feel free to tell me...

Actually, his issue is fixed, so there's no need to worry on that anymore.

Most of the time, CPU fans will blast at full speed if there's no 4-pin/8-pin CPU power connector plugged in the board and in my case, can be forgotten quite easily.
