Some Computer help.......please!

Found 13th Dec 2009
Hey folks. I know someone, somewhere out there will be able to help me. My computer is bit wrecked (using daughers laptop just now). The box itself will power up but no power going through to the screen or keyboard. The only way I'm able to get it switched off is by holding in the power button for about 8 secs. Bit of a nightmare. Have I lost everything or is it sort able? Really can't afford to be buying another computer just now but got no ideas about these sort of things.
Any advice will be much appreciated.

No beeps at all........should I be worried. Checked all connections and everything fine.

How do you know the monitor hasn't packed up?

could be the lead that goes from the cpu to the monitor perhaps? That was the prob I had once..

no beeps means your power supply or your motherboadr are goosed
