Angry building pc from second hand parts but nothing shows on monitor

i have had this problem with a few computers as i do repairs for friends and family. when I start building a pc I always test it the hole way through. With this one I have started building and once I inserted the ram I powered the comp but nothing happened to the monitor. It didnt even come off power saveing mode. I removed the ram and tryed again but with the same result. I then tryed a different cpu but still the same thing. I then tryed changeing the motherboard but same thing. I have now tryed 3 different motherboards, 3 cpu's, 3 sticks of sd ram as I am trying to build a pentium 2. I have also tryed different graphics cards. not sure how many but more then 3. I have tryed everything i can think of but not gettin any results so can some one please help. When trying to start a business fixing and selling computers it doesnt look good when you cant even get a pic on a monitor. oh yer I have also used 5 monitors which I know work on other comps. please help me
