if your computer comes on but the monitor is black then there could be several things wrong with it. It could be the RAM in it, the processor or your video card. Hard to tell without checking it out. I work on computers and guarantee my work. If you want to bring it by my house i can take a look at it for free. I am not very expensive, I charge no more then $25 to fix computers no matter what is wrong with it and you don't pay anything unless i fix it. leave comment if interested and i will leave my email.

I could usually fix it myself. By pressing f4. Or fn+f6. My cat lays on it and I'm thinkin it has pushed something. The monitor is on and it's not really blacked out. More like just blank cause I can see a glow from it. I just can't figure it out.

it could have jarred a stick of RAM loose or your video card. you can take the side off it and make sure they are securely in their slots. If you don't know how to do that yourself email me at [email protected] if you want to bring it by. if it is just something loose then i would only charge $10 to open it up and fix it. If that isn't the problem then some parts may have to be replaced. Like i said if i can't fix it i don't charge.

is this on a desktop or laptop
for desktop
unplug your vga cable from your monitor the power it on with out it hook up to your tower dose it show any thing then if it dosnt show any thing monitors bad it should show a lego of some kind as soon as its powered on
dose the desktop have a video card if so that could be it the video card could be going bad or the screen settings are way off
or it could be bad ram or bad onboard gpu or your bios settings or messed up or it could be a bad motherboard the capacitor or
capacitors could have poped
laptop
bad back lights in the screen
or bad screen inverter
bad ram
or its a black screen of death a bad gpu on the motherboard

I have a hp pavillion, that has the same problem, I looked it up, it commonly called the black screen of death. Very common with computers that run Vista. I am a pretty good tech, my self and could not fix it. I may just take you up on your offer to fix mine also. Thanks for posting.

black screen of death is usailly a gpu aka graphics processing unit gone bad from over heating and the fact they make motherboards to thin they bend as they get hot and cold cracking the solder joints that hold in your gpu
most gpus are solder and glued in to the same thing that cause 360 to red ring ps3 to yellow light fools thing you can take a heat gun and reflow the solder will fix it it want when the solder cracks like that it cause power power serges in the gpu damaging thats why every 360 and ps3 thats been reflow mess up again in no time the best way to fix a bad gpu replace the mother board and not waste time or money reflowing one
vista black screen is not always the gpu in fact its usally a driver problem either video or bios drives vista is bad for that most of the time ill either upgrade or down grade the os on any computer i get running vista
