    Shut the pc down and completely disconnect the monitor and the power to it for about 20 minutes. Then reconnect everything and try a fresh boot.

    However if you are not seeing the keyboard at least flash during restart you may have corrupted BIOS settings or perhaps even a bad power supply.

    Try replacing the cmos battery on the motherboard, it's a silver quarter sized battery.
