Try known working monitor, reseat video adapter if present, try to boot to bios, watch normal lights at start up to know how far it is getting.

Might have to use volt meter to decide if power supply is on.

Then I take everything out and try to boot to only processor and listen for beep codes and go from there.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
