When you say you can 'hear the computer running' do you mean you hear the fans and drives spinning or do you mean you hear the windows sounds? If you hear the windows sounds then you have a problem with the monitor--maybe the connection--or the video controller or card.

If you just hear fans and drives then something must have been damaged when the cable disconnected. That could be the power supply, motherboard or both.

If you were pulling cables, etc. check your monitor's cables, either the power or signal cables may be partially pulled out and not making contact. Check them first.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
