Why won't my monitor come on?

Specs: Windows
My computer monitor will not come on. The light is orange and when I turn it on it says shutting down in 5 sec and turn off. It will not show any thing else, just shutting down in 5 sec and turn off. The hard drive is working the fan comes on and it loads up, the monitor is the only thing not coming on.

If your monitor shuts off in 5 seconds, how do you have any idea if the "hard drive is working" or anything "loads up"?

I can hear the hard drive and when I put a disk in the hard drive is turning to start the disk. Just the monitor will say mode in 5 sec and turn off. I can hear the hard drive and the hard drive light stay on. The monitor is what will not stay on. and I can't figure out why.

Either the monitor is bad or the video card isn't supplying a signal to it. Do you hear a single beep at startup?
