Hi K&K,
First of all,you shouldn't be messing with the cpu as it has nothing to do with your monitor not working.If your not seeing a picture,it can only be the monitor or video card.What exactly is the problem you're having.
Take care.

Hi Kev,
Shut down the computer & open it up.Grab the bare metal with both hands to discharge any static electricity.Take the video card out & clean the gold contacts with a pencil eraser.Then reseat the video card.Let me know if this helps.
Take care.

Hey sandy..
That was a good idea to clean the gold contacts..
I just tried it then turned the power on and the monitor still doesnt work..
The led light on the monitor flashes..

Hi Kev,
Since everything worked before you took the cpu out & now it isn't,then check the cpu & make sure that none of the pins are bent.They must be perfectly straight & that it fits back in the socket the right way.If you look at the bottom where the pins are,in one corner,it'll look like it's missing a pin.The socket will be the same way.Just line the pins up,it only goes in one way.
Take care.

Hi Sandy
I have checked my CPU and tried to put it bac but somehow it wont go in.. check the pins and some were bent so i made them straight with a small needle.. when they were all in line i tried putting it bac but still dont have the feelin its in the right place.. then i did this again and somehow broken 1 small pin, will this affect it?? on the motherboard there is 2 metal bars on each side where you put the cpu in which holds the cpu in place.. as i put it in i closed it by moving the 2 metal bars down.. i assumed it was in place so then i tried to turn the computer on with everything in place but still the monitor doesnt show up just the monitors led flashing.. i tried this with another monitor too and still it does the same thing..
thanks for the help..
takecare.

Hi Kev,
>>somehow wont go in<<
This is why you're having problems.The cpu has to be fit in the socket perfectly.As I said before,it can only go in one way.Make sure those pins are perfectly straight.
Take care.

Hi Sandy..
I checked the pins and they look straight..kinda got a feeling its not going in the holes.. i checked to see if it was in the right place and im sure it is.. coz my pentium 4 pins are so small theres lots of them n its kinda hard to see which one isnt going in..
Thanks
Kev

dear friend if you are unable to get the dispaly while doing your hands dirty with the pc it may be cause of faulty assembling
kindly reassembel the system
and what kind of bios you are using there at your mother board
if you could find the name there kindly check the  bios error code
you may find these site if any of them is of ur interest
http://www.megatrends.com/
or simply search the name of bios with the most popular search
www.google.com
so you could trace the problem
generally single beep indicates that your system is fine
in case any other beep kindly check the documentations
using search
and then trace the problem
give reply is this method solve the porblem
