I dont believe its a monitor problem. Verify physical connections of keyboard or monitor are OK. Try to relpace the keyboard and see if keys on the keyboard are stuck down....this can cause you computer to not post or boot up properly.

Try clearing the BIOS. I'm sure pressing a few keys hasn't done any permenant damage.
