Does the monitor power on, but just not display anything? If so, perhaps the cable carrying the video from the computer came loose. You might want to check to make sure it is plugged in all the way to both the computer and the monitor.

When the computer was working did it give a single beep on powerup indicating it passed post?
What model hp is it?
If you have a spare video card try it but don't purchase one just yet because this could be a number of things.
Does the fan in the power supply spin when started?

The computer is a HP Pavilion XL918
No, I don't have any spare PCI video cards around. I do have a AGP card but this board has no AGP slots.

How about that psu fan, is it spinning? If not that would indicate that the psu has failed

This is a long shot but it won't cost anything. Do any friends have a spare psu or a pci video card you could barrow.
I keep a couple old pci cards around just for occasions like this

But I was missing NTLDR from my hard drive so I fixed that, then when I restarted my computer to see if it would work without my floppy disk, it didn't pop up any picture.
