When I went to turn my PC on today, the monitor was black.  All the connections seemed okay.  Went to Best Buy tonight to buy new monitor, but that's not working either.  What could it be?  With the old monitor, I heard my PC start up,  but since installing the new one, I hear nothing. HELP!

Well if you don't hear the computer start up, there's a problem in the computer itself, not the monitor. When you say hear it startup, what did you hear that you're no longer hearing? Power supply fan, POST confirmation beep, Windows startup sound? Do any power lights come on? If not, have you checked if there is a master power switch on the back of the computer that has been bumped off, or the mains plug come loose in the socket? What brand and model is the computer?
