Solved My monitor wont turn on even though I have clean RAM and CPU

Specs: Windows, Intel i5 6gb RAM
My monitor wont turn on. So I decided to search how to fix it. I did everything I was told to do, such as clean both RAM sticks and then get the CMOS battery and then wait for 10 minutes before putting it back on. I did all these but it still wont turn on.

do you have on board video? or a video card that your plugged into if so try the on board jack first, then if it doesn't work try the other one if you have 2 jacks.did you install the latest drivers? also if its a add on care make sure you plug in extra power cord if it needs it.

"My monitor wont turn on"

If your monitor won't turn on, you have a monitor problem. If your monitor turns on but displays "no signal" or something similar, the monitor is probably OK & the problem is with the tower. I don't know why you would remove the CMOS battery to fix a graphics problem? By doing so, all the BIOS settings reverted to the defaults. If any of the settings were customized for your hardware configuration, you may have compounded the problems. In the subject, you say you cleaned the CPU - how did you go about doing that? We should probably clarify exactly what you're referring to as a CPU.

Here's a view of a tower with the side panel removed showing the CPU & other components:

First question: Is this a laptop, or a less portable PC?
Second question: Is this monitor a part of the PC, or a separate external monitor?

Have you tried the monitor on another computer?
Have you tried a different monitor cable?
Have you verified that the monitor is properly plugged in and any surge protector or power strip are plugged in and turned on?
Is there any power light on on the monitor either green, yellow, orange, etc?
Have you tried a different monitor?
Please answer these and above questions so we can narrow down the possibilities some.
