    Hey guys, just recently i decided i would start using a different computer, but replace its current with my ram, HD and video card. Unfortunately, to my disappointment, the monitor didnt turn on after installing all this. So, i took it all out, put in the old, and it still didnt work. It was working just a week ago, but now not?
    I know the monitor works because i plugged it into my original computer and it was fine...
    Could the MOBO on the other computer be damaged/ready for the scrap?

    you may have dammged your video card, just check the video card and then pull the ram out and put it back in. check to see if there is any dust on the ram or the video card where it goes into the motherboard. hope this has helped.

    You probably bumped a cable or plug out, it's easy to do. re seat all the cables and plugs and also video card if separate from board (in it's own slot). Do you still get lights and fans when you push power button? If the ram was not seated perfectly it is easy to blow a cheap power supply BTW.
