    Hi, so today a heavy like 1kg wooden block accidentally fell on my Cpu, after that my monitor went black, when I restarted it, in the password page it started to look like those broken TV static and static sound came. Can you help me understand what happened? Is my motherboard affected?

    By 'Cpu' do you mean a desktop PC ? I assume it was on when the accident happened ?

    With the PC and Monitor turned off try disconnecting then reconnecting the Video cable at the PC end.
    Then switch them on. Is the display ok now ?

    If by "Cpu" you mean CPU (Central Processing Unit) I would expect the CPU to be dead and the motherboard to be adversely affected.

    Actually, The Monitor is working fine but after pressing the power button, BIOS setup won't start. Probably the motherboard is damaged.

    The CPU is not dead, it's actually working, but motherboard is probably damaged.

    We still don't know what the wood actually hit, was it a PC case or the actual Cpu (the processor) ?

    It was the actual CPU.

    You will have to swap the Cpu and/or the Motherboard to find out which is damaged, it could be both so safest thing would be to swap both at the same time.
