This sounds like the Power Supply as packed in. I think for HP you may need to get one of there's as they may not be standard ATX PSU. It's not the monitor that's at fault in the computer that's not powering up

NOTE: Packard Bell & HP (Hewlett Packard) are different companies.

There's a lot of information to be had on PB's website, this being a pretty new machine, I would doubt it to be a power supply problem, but of course we all know things can go wrong, regardless of age. click here
