move your video card into another slot. i had a very similiar problem. i used my computer for about a month, then opened it to install something, and once i went to power it back on, my monitor wasn't leaving standby mode. i totally was at a loss...so i switched my vga card into another slot...and it works.

i still don't have a clue why it all of a sudden didn't work. well trying doing...maybe it will work for you as well

try to get yourself a speaker for it. Diagnosing the problem is very difficult otherwise

I read the whole thing, it just didn't register.

The speaker Lowndsey is talking about is a BIOS speaker, it plugs into your motherboard and should give you a beep or series of beeps depending on the motherboard and the problem.

Edit: Beat me to it.

locate the pins on the m/board you would connect your power switch cables to when the board is in the case and use a screw driver or similar to bridge the two pins, this will start the pc.
