Hello and Welcome to GP !

Try to reset the CMOS Battery http://www.wikihow.com/Reset-Your-BIOS
Remove the RAM and put it back in make sure it seated properly. Make sure all the cables are connected correctly.

I assume this has on-board video. If so, heat may have caused the video processor damage. See if you can add a video card.

Sorry to hear that neither the on-board of added video card worked. That's as far as I can go with your problem. Hopefully someone has other ideas.

Hi,

You're saying that your pc starts but the problem is that your screen is totally black?

See if everything is in its place. E.g. Get the RAM out, clean it a bit, put it back.
