CPU fan starts, HDD spins up, but there is no display. Could it be a problem with the motherboard or the CPU? CPU is heating so I think it's working. There isn't any beep speakers in the computer.
Specs:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-B75M-D2V
CPU: Intel Pentium G2030 LGA 1155 3GHz
RAM: Team Elite 4GB DDR3-1333

Maybe the BIOS is bricked?

Hard to tell which component without a testing rig. Shotgunning is the norm. Motherboards have a much higher failure rate than CPU's. I have had multiple MB failures but only one i4790k I had been overclocking the piss out of for years. I keep spare just-in-case parts. It beats pulling your hair out.

What PSU ? Brand, model and power, ana age.
Have you access to another PSU ?
No GPU ? Using the Intel® HD Graphics ?
HDD / SSD ?

Yes of course. There a 3 different power lines in a system: 3.3 V, 5 V and the main 12 V that feeds the CPU and the mobo.
You likely see the low voltages activities
Wait! The power supplies are 20-pin atx power but the motherboard has a 24-pin connector. Could that be a problem?

I don't know about most of the good people on this boards expertise. I have been building computers since my Amiga days. It seems many folks come here with the same or similar problems. There should be a list list of the sequence of events that should be mandatory to read. Like.. Did you plug the power in? Maybe a flow chart. How did you wake up this morning. With sleep in your eyes. Yes/No and so on.
Truth be known, I was an FSE for 10 years before getting my electronics degree. No PC's in 1978. I serviced 80 column keypunch card machines. I was a great learning experience.
