I have a IBM ThinkCentre M52 the hard drive comes on, the processor comes on and the fans come on but nothing comes up on the computer screen.
The monitor works and the computer won't boot.

If nothing comes up on the screen at all, then I'd suspect either your video card (built into the motherboard in this model), your cabling/connections, or your monitor. Less likely, but still a possibility is another hardware failure that's preventing the video from displaying. I'd test it with another video card to be sure.

If you get something on the monitor, but then it goes away and doesn't return - you'll have to provide more info as to where it stops in order to help further.
