    Earlier today my dad turned on our computer to a blue screen. It told him to restart the computer if he had never seen it before, and he did. However, we cannot get it to start back up. When we press the power button, the fan runs (harder than usual), but the monitor stays asleep. HELP.

    Do you have a Windows CD? If so, does the computer boot from that? If you don't have a CD, have you tried running the system recovery discs you created shortly after getting the computer?

    I can't get to the BIOS because the monitor will not turn on. Nothing happens when I try to run the recovery discs.

    You say the you can't get to the BIOS because the monitor will not turn on. Do you see the ON light on the monitor? If so try unplugging the power and the monitor cable from the video card and then reseating them cable again. If there is no power light in the monitor then it is most likely dead.
