That happened to me once. I needed to make the room dark,
so I turned the brightness all the way down. A few minutes later
I shut the computer off. When I started it the next day, I failed to
recall that I turned the brightness down, so I thought something
was seriously wrong, and had to get help from a friend to fix it.
He turned the brightness up and said it was the easiest fix he'd
ever done.

Since your hear the windows music the PC must be good so you're left with a problem with the monitor, its connection to the computer or the video adapter in the computer.

Make sure it's not something simple like a brightness or contrast adjustment.

If the monitor is connected with a regular cable (I'm not sure if those 'all in one' are configured differently) check it for kinks and verify a good connection on both ends.

You should probably try a different monitor if the above isn't the problem.

Take a flashlight and shine it on the LCD, if you can see an image then it's your backlight, CCFL or LED that is not working. If it's a CCFL LCD then replace your inverter, if it's a LED LCD then you will have to check the fuses on the mainboard.

If there is no image when you shine the flashlight on the LCD then it could be a failed LCD, LCD cable, or graphics processor.
