Default Computer Wont Boot

Hey everyone. I woke up this morning to a weird situation. My computer was frozen in Windows, and I couldnt move my mouse. The laser in my mouse wasnt on either. So I restarted the computer, and nothing would happen. It would neither go to the BIOS, or show anything on the monitor for that matter. All of the fans and HDDs start up though, so I'm thinking its not the PSU. I think its the mainboard, but is there anything I'm overlooking?

double check your monitor connection,
ram, power supply and motherboard could be the problem. video card maybe also

If you know how to do it, Reset your CMOS. Sometimes that helps weird stuff like that.

You can find out how to reset CMOS in your motherboards forums or in a guide from the manufacturer.
