Exclamation Oh Noes!!! System down!

Went to reboot last night and my PC would show the "Loading windows" bar, then flicker, then nothing...black screen. I went into BIOS and set everything to defaults and tried again....same thing.

I got into safe mode, and everything was working fine. So I rebooted once again and kept encountering the same problem. I could boot into safe mode, but not Normal at all.

So I left it and went to bed to tackle it this morning....however....now, when I power it up I cant even get into safe mode or BIOS! I can see the HDD light working and the power light on, but nothing shows up on the monitor. No beeps at all, just...nothing. I know the monitor works as I've tested it on another computer, my only thought is the vid card is dead? But then it should beep shouldnt it?

Any ideas or thoughts would be appreciated! thanks!
