I looked over your BIOS manual yesterday and saw there was a few "power" settings that would cause that issue. Instead of having you head to your BIOS and find them I decided to have you clear your CMOS.

Why? Because the settings that would cause that issue were not default. The default settings are actually what you want.

If so some reason it happens again... let me know. I'll see what I can do to help you iron it out. But, I'm glad it seems back to normal now.

This needs to be posted on your other thread if you already have one out there. Reason being you've abviously already tried a bunch of things and how are we supposed to know what you've done? If we had the original thread to look through we'd know where to start.

So it is black the entire time? Or does it go black after the post screen?

My initial thought is a video card.

yeah its black the entire time

after like it being off for 8 hours i turn it on just a black screen there

the whole computer just frezzes then i try and reset it with the reset button but that doesnt work so i have to turn it off by the power button but once the computer turns off the blue power light stays on....

and once it reboots it loads up fine

and this computer has a onboard graphics card

Okay, scratch the video card, sounds like a program is freezing and locking up your system before it goes into sleep or hibernation.

Do you have XP or Vista? Did you install any applications or updates around the time you noticed this happening?

Okay, i still think something is hanging and not allowing the system to go into hibernation - therefor hanging the bios as well which would explain why you can't restart and have to hard power the computer.

Turn off hibernation and sleep and see if it is still doing it. Does it do it when you keep it on all night?
