Ok, this means it may be the video card, try re-seating it, and reseting the CMOS using the CMOS jumper on the motherboard.

to reseat it you just pull the video card out and then put it back in, the look on the motherboard and see if you can find a little plastic thing that says CMOS, move it over 1 pin, for about a min, then put it back, and see if it boots.

ouch, on board video. That sucks, unfortunatley, if clearing the CMOS does not work, and the monitor works on another computer, than that onboard video card is toast.
