Default starting the computer

hi..i have a 2003 computer..i bought it from a friend...and i think i screwe something up..but everything is connected, monitor,power, and everything..i turn it on..and all the LED's(cd-rom,floppy,power,processing) and every other light outside..goes on...and stays on..it won't send power from the motherboard to the monitor, so i can't change nothing, or more the less get to anything..is there anything i can do? is it a piece of junk? or do i need a new power supply? or what? can anyone tell me what is wrong? and how positive you are? because i'm clueless...but if you could help..that'd be great..thanks!

We need more info like specs and things. Is your monitor completly connected to your pc? Does you monitor have power? Do you hear the beep at the beginning?
