How to fix a motherboard that doesn't give display?

I've had around 6 PC motherboards that I have changed over the years. I have all the motherboards with me. The problem with them is that there is a light on the board and the fans turn on when I power up the PC but there is no display. This seems to be a common problem for PC users. I need to know what could be causing such problems and if there is a way to fix it.

Thank You

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Denver Braganza, all of this will depend on your trouble shooting skills. It would also help if you tell us what kind of motherboards those are, and if you use the same CPU for all the boards. You said "there is a light on the board and the fans turn on when I power", the light is most likely a 5V power standby light, saying your board receives power. The fan kicking in is also good. Now, I would suggest you try to remove all the RAM and replace it with one known-good module. Then try to restart. You also want to try to use a different video card if you are using to onboard video. Let us know what you find.

They are all normal motherboards. But the CPUS are different. ONe is an Intel Pentium 4. One is an old AMD CPU. I don't know about the others I have. I have tried putting a single good RAM and also a working video card but still I don't get any display. The fans keep running. Even the GPU fan. The light stays on. But no display. I have tested the RAM, power supply and graphic card on my friends boards and they worked fined. I think it might be a board problem. Almost every friend I have has the same problem and they have had their boards replaced.
