Having no display on your monitor does not neccessarily mean your PC is not booting, since it's possible that the monitor or the monitor's signal cable may be faulty, and neither of those would stop a PC from booting (you just wouldn't see anything).

Try a different monitor and/or signal cable first to check that possibility.

If a different monitor and/or cable makes no difference (still nothing displayed), tell us how many BIOS beeps you are getting, and whether they are short or long beeps. This helps to diagnose which component is faulty.

For u to hear the beep(s) onboard speaker must be present.

To confirm the monitor is working disconnect the vga cable from motherboard or the v-card and start the monitor, if u see no signal message on the screen the monitor is fine and if the message doesn't appear the the screen is bad.

PC not booting
The correct words are PC not posting.

Failing power supplies are common and can cause your symptoms.
Check your PS.
They often partially work, fans and hard drives may spin, leds may come on, yet you may get no video and the mboard will not boot all the way.
See response 4 in this:

If you can borrow a power supply from another working computer, try connecting that.
