does your pc have two connections for moniter, one being on-board, and the other being a agp/pci graphix card, if so plug it into the onboard one, press del to enter the bios and change the settings to agp instead of onboard, you might have to go through all the options to find the right one, but you'll know hwne you see it.

A few Questions:

Does your monitor have a wee Lamp which indicates that there is power getting to it? Is this on? Usually a monitor, that is switched on, but getting no signal from the PC exhibits some sort of message. So check your Power Supply, including the socket.

Is the Graphics On-board or from a graphics card? If it is from a Graphics Card: Switch the PC off at the Mains > Open the case > Unscrew the Face Plate of the Graphics Card > Lift out the Card by it's edges taking care not to touch any of the electronics > Replace the Card, pushing it firmly back in > Close the Case and try again.

...you have to hold the button in for a few seconds.

On your main problem, I think you may have corrupted start up files. If you have a Windpws disk, put it in the drive then switch on. Press either DEL or F2 or whatever, to get into BIOS. Then set the first boot device as CD ROM.

When [if] it starts up you may need to repair Windows using the repair option.
