Hello,
I had a problem with my date/time resetting and ran loads of virus scan etc but came up with nothing. Changed time/date in bios but kept doing it so I replaced the cmos battery and now I have no display on my monitor and I don't have any beeps when I turn pc on. I have checked all wires are properly connected inside and out and have checked ram graphics card etc but nothing and I'm out of ideas on what to do

Have you tried with another monitor?

Fan is running on both graphics card and cpu, not tried another monster yet as I can't get hold of one at the moment
