Default PLEASE HELP pc signal problems

one day while watching some vids on youtube, my pc froze and a beeping noise came from the speakers. After rebooting pc it powerd up, and a black screen came on monitor saying signal unplugged etc etc. While smiling i replugged monitor cable into video card, turned it on and same problem happend. I replaced another video card into agp slot and it didn't work. Only tip i didn't do was to try different monitors, but i don't have another monitor. Pc is running and fans are twirling but the monitor is black saying signal unplugged. Please help as soon as you can!

99.999% of the time this is a dead motherboard. clear the cmos/remove the battery then retry it. Remove any cards from the pci and AGP slots and remove the ram and unhook all the IDE cables (hdd, cd, dvd etc) and boot the computer if it won't post or beep then the motherboard is dead.
