Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.
By reading your post above I believe your saying this computer is still booting up, you probably hear the one lone system beep code indicating system is Okay. (If I am wrong please correct me)
What you are describing is the computer is booting but there is no video on the screen.
I would suspect a video port (VGA port) malfunction. In other words there may be a faulty solder joint where the VGA port connects to the circuitry of the motherboard.
Jiggling the connector may show a brief sign of monitor activity, or non at all, being that your BIOS beep codes are not indicating a video accelerator error, chances are the on-board is working, but not sending the signal past the motherboard connection to the video port.
You may have to gain access to the motherboard bottom to look for a loose VGA port connection lug, which is usually soldered on the bottom of the motherboard, jiggling the VGA connector port slightly, might reveal a loose connection.
If this is the case, you can correct this by re-flowing the connection using a grounded tip solder iron used for electronics repair, DO NOT use a wood burning tool!
Please post back what you discover, I'll monitor this thread in case you need further help or assistance from me.
