Default Help!

Okay, to help you guys discuss my problem, I will give you the specs of my computer.

It is a Gateway $300 P.O.S.

It has;
2.5 Intel Processor.
Onboard 64mb Intel Extreme Graphics
Onboard Realtek 97 sound
256mb 333mghz pc2100

Okay, at first it was putting the Monitor in power save mode, and not coming back up. Then it would restart, and work for a few, and do it again. Then it got stuck in that position, so I unplugged the monitor and it worked again for awhile. Now it is permanantly stuck in power save mode. Now, I took off the side of my tower, and there is 2 little L.E.D. lights, on by the processor, which is green.. and one below by my PCI ports, that is red. I have no idea what is wrong with it, and have no idea where to start.

I checked all the plugs, tried restarting it with all of the USB plugs pulled out. I tried letting it cool down, thinking maybe it over-heated. None of this worked, so if you have ANY ideas, please let me know, and a short tutorial on how to fix this.

I am going insane, and it has been broken for 2 hours =p
