First of all - welcome to BC !
Since this appears to be a desktop the first thing to do is to try a different monitor to see if the fault appears on that. If you don't have a spare monitor then see if you can borrow one. This will determine if the problem is with the monitor or the computer.
I cannot go further than this unless you supply rather more information :- make and model of computer, video card fitted if known, make and model of monitor, your OS.

Do you have a separate graphics card in this computer or are you using on-board graphics ? If you are using a separate graphics card try the on-board graphics and see if the display works then.
Your problem is you have five components in the chain and the simplest way to establish which one is causing the problem is substitution - you replace a component with a known good one. The components are :- The monitor. The connecting cable. Your graphics card. The mobo. And just possibly the PSU. The first three are the most likely culprits and the simplest way to check them is to try a temporary replacement - beg, borrow or steal them. Once you have established which component is faulty then you can consider buying a replacement.
Another factor you have to consider. This is a fairly old computer, it may just be time to replace it.
Or that i turn it off at the power button mostly all the time?
If by this you mean you routinely turn off the computer by pressing and holding the 'On' switch this is not good for computers. They are meant to be shut down by software, try and get out of the habit of using the power-on button.
