Cpu Starts But Moniter Doesnt?

This sounds like a hardware issue that may be going on.
Maybe faulty RAM.
It is a bit hard to ascertain as I, amongst others, are unable to physically look at and test the system that are using.

Are you able to load into Linux once the monitor starts working? If not, there may be an issue with your video configuration.

I use Sabayon Linux X and in their FAQs they have :

Video Worked on LiveCD/DVD, but not once install. Options?

If your video was fine on the LiveCD/DVD I would boot the LiveCD/DVD and copy the xorg.conf from it to your hard drive install. There are several ways to do this.

Option 1 - Boot up and browse to /etc/X11/ and copy the file xorg.conf to your installed version. You should be able to access your installed version through the /media directory so it may be something like /media/mydrive/etc/X11/ Reboot the computer and you should have what you had on the LiveCD/DVD. Always backup your files before overwriting.

Option 2 - Boot up and browse to /etc/X11/xorg.conf and use something like http://www.pastebin.ca to paste your xorg.conf file there. Note the URL so that when you reboot to your installed version you can access it. Then just rename your existing xorg.conf and make a new one with the one you pasted.

If you still don't have any luck, we may need to look at your drivers. Try reinstalling your video drivers, but, before reinstalling, make sure you are getting the latest drivers. NVIDIA users, make sure you are using the proper drivers for your card. See Question 1 under Video Questions. https://wiki.sabayon.org/index.php?title...

This may help you find a solution to your current issue.
Since you are using Ubuntu, you will want to ask for support at their main forums http://ubuntuforums.org/

I hope this helps.
