Try this.. shut the computer down completely and pull the plug ffrom the back of your system. Make sure your power supply is switched off and press the power button then plug it back in, flip the switch. If that dosent work, try reseating the video card. If that dosent work.. Is it beeping or doing anything at all?

He said reseat.

And you would want to try to reseat it before you try flipping the switch.

To reseat you just take it out, and then put it into the computer again, firmly.

Reset your CMOS. Take out the batter on your mobo for about 10 minutes. And if that doesnt work, just come on back.

I mean there is no reason that it would work, but I cant think of anything else.

Then reboot your computer in normal mode, and it all should be good.
This is probably the best advice offered in this thread so far, I would follow this.

Without any specs on your pc or gfx card I would suggest setting your res to 1024x768 in safe mode and rebooting, if possible.

Also I would suggest reseating the graphics card but I have doubts if you would be comfortable doing this

You state you now have beep codes at boot, if I interpret your last post correctly, do you know what bios your pc is running or failing that the m/board brand and model? so we can interpret the error.

From the description of the symptoms, I would have to say my initial reaction is a dead video card.
