I agree with Andrei; sounds like a hardware problem.

I'd try unplugging all peripherals, and cables (esp. power), and maybe
opening the case and removing any plug-in devices, including drives,
RAM, video cards, modems, etc, and just have bare-as-possible
motherboard with /CPU/fans, and then put the power cable back in and
power up. Hopefully you'll get some beeps, complaining about the RAM.
Power back down, add the RAM back in, and video card if necessary, and
plug in the monitor, and try powering up again. Hopefully, you'll see
the machine respond with enough life that you can then try putting it
all back together and trying again, but if you still don't get any
video, you've definitely got a hardware problem.
