    Earlier today I put my computer on standby for a while. Then when I went back to my computer I moved the mouse to start the computer again, however, the tower started functioning again but there was no images on the screen. I restarted the computer again and there was still no image on the screen. I later plugged a different monitor up to my tower and the same thing happened, no image was being shown on the monitor. Do any of you have any ideas on how I may be able to troubleshoot this problem.

    Try re-inserting the video card, could have come a bit loose.

    Hi Jaymez
    I would first power off the system and unplug then replug the ac power. If that doesn't work try reseating everything inside the computer. (Memory, processor and cables.) If still nothing remove/disconnect everything except for memory, video board, processor, and power. You should be able to get a boot up display with just these connected.

    Thanks for the replies. Fortunately my computer started working again after I tried restarting it again and again. I also blew air into it, which might have helped.
