desktop PC starts but monitor says "no signal"

When I turn on Packard bell imedia PC it seems to start. Windows logo comes on and it looks as if it is going to start screen, then it goes off and monitor says "no signal". Could the fact that power was switched off at socket by mistake have any bearing on this problem? Could this have damaged something? Monitor and cable work perfectly on other computer. Thanks.
