    Hi and welcome to Majorgeeks

    I have moved your question to its own thread so it gets answers and questions for your issue, as info for any future questiosn this is handy guide How To Post A New Thread Requesting Support

    As for your issue, initial things I would be checking is that all the cables outside and the inside ones are firmly plugged in and would generally unplug them and pop them back in one at a time, the one inside I would be looking at is the Hard Drive connection.

    The I would look for the BIOS battery a button cell and take out old one and leave for 10mins with no battery then replace, the BIOS,CMOS could have become corrupt and leaving the battery out can help in clearing the BIOS, CMOS. (try not to get the battery when replacing too full of fingerprints as finger grease is not good for contacts, just a tissue.

    Next if those dont work is to remove the Graphics Card (unless onboard type) and then replace incase its gotten loose or bad connection.

    Check that the CPU fan is not clogged with dust as heat build up is a killer.

    Then remove and replace the ram again to re-seat.

    The CD being left in the drive maybe just a co-incidence to this happening as I do that often and doesnt cause issue.

    Yeah I'm thinking too to check and make sure the switch on the monitor itself is on.

    I had a screen go bad, that sounds like what happened to mine some time back. It was an e-machines screen as well.
