Work through these Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot.

Booting the disks required to disinfect and repair Windows 7 (provided in blue link) will tell you if the monitor or other hardware has problems or the issue is truly the OS failure to boot.

If there is interference with the steps then return to the hardware tests referenced in beginning note.

Post back results of each step as there may be others based on that.
