Disable or turn off the power management options(i.e. standby, suspend, sleep, hibernate, etc.) in that computer. It'll run better and have less problems. (y)

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.
