Pc was in rebooting loop, now monitor won't work

This is almost a repost because it says my previous post is solved but it is not?!

When I turned off my pc everything seemed to turn off inside the pc but the keyboard, mouse and headset did not. I tried turning the pc on again but then it just starts this starting loop on/off and on/off. As shown in the video link bellow you can hear a clicking noise everytime it starts, but the keyboard is still lit so there must still be power going through. Another problem is when I turn on the pc and it starts this weird loop, it won't shut down unless I break the power and so does the keyboard of course also stop lighting. I had this problem a month ago where someone said I should clean the computer because it was the PSU overheating and shutting down itself, I did clean the computer and waited for 48 hours, then the computer started. Now I also cleaned the computer but this time it won't work, I'm starting to think it might be something else. Yesterday when I started the computer it was an error and windows error message said "there was trouble starting your computer wait for restart :(" then it all worked, idk if this has something to do with this starting loop but I at least need some help. Thank you.

Here the starting loop video link: click here

UPDATE: Problem almost solved by reinserting the ram. But now my next problem the monitor won't turn on after I fixed the rebooting issue, I have tried reinserting cable etc but it won't work, any ideas? Thank you.

Check you're connected to the right GPU port. Your card's port not the motherboard's.

I'm connected to the GPU and not the motherboard. Any other suggestions? :)

Remove the card and connect to the mobo's GPU port. If working suggests GPU bad or not connected properly to the PCI-E slot.

when plugged into the motherboard it is not working either. I have tested both the monitor and the cable to another computer and they work fine. it is something with my computer. Another thing is when I turn on the computer and leave it on it should go into standby or power saving mode, but it never does. I don't know so much about pc but I guess this is something problematic with the system, not hardware..? Idk.

or do I need to remove the GPU from the computer so the mobo port is going to work?

Yes, as the card disables on-board graphics.
