Testing if your motherboard is good
In most cases there isn't a way to actually test the motherboard but instead you troubleshoot components inside the computer. first would be to test the power supplies with a multimeter or a psu tester. if that test out good you then have to test components like the ram. try replacing them with other known good sticks of ram. if that don't fix the problem try swaping video cards. if that don't work the last step is to remove the heatsink from your cpu. then turn the computer on and feel the cpu

how to tell if your video card is bad
before i start this i will say if you don't have a video card and your video is integrated into the motherboard you would have to buy a video card and install it to fix this problem.
most of the time when a video card fails you tend to see funky looking graphics on the screen or nothing at all
here is a picture of what this might look like

in this case just buy a new video card and install it and you should be good to go.
