Do you have an AGP video card with its own memory or are you using an onboard video display adapter that is part of the motherboard?
Do you hear the hard drive powering up and fans running in the computer?
If it is booting, the monitor should come on - even if it is in 16bit basic mode. Make sure it has power coming to it (there will be a light on the front panel that will display either yellow, red or green after you use the switch on it to turn it on).
If you are using an AGP or PCI (seperate video card), did you disable the onboard graphics in the bios?
