Download a copy of my diagnostic flowcharts from here

and print them to leaf through.
Begin on the STARTUP chart.
Do you hear no single short beep?
If no beep, then at the very least there is no completion of the BIOS's POST and the video card is not enabled and therefore there is no output of any video signal, hence...

FAILURE TO COMPLETE POST, NO BEEP, NO VIDEO.

Startup with all RAM removed, to see if the POST is running, testing and giving warning beeps that the RAM tests are failing [the internal speaker must be functional].
