Summary: Start the computer as normal, the fans start up, the router reads the computer, everything lights up. The motherboard doesn't beep stating everything's normal and it never shows anything on my monitor. Not even the BIOS splash, nor does the computer make the normal Vista start up noise when it gets to the login screen.
Edit: The keyboard doesn't light up or have the num lock turn on either.
What I know: Until now everything has been working. I normally leave my computer on shutting it down every so often at night so I can remote to it when I'm at work or away for the weekend. I accessed it just fine last night, however when I tried today I couldn't. Thinking we had a power outage or someone turned off my desktop I waited until I got home and noticed it running as above and tried restarting it/waking it out of sleep.
I have been having an issue with one of my new sticks of RAM being faulty giving me the BSOD (forget the error), but have been lazy and haven't bothered replacing it as I can restart and everything's fine. Could this, prolonged cause the computer to hang like this?
I'm at a loss as to what to call this for researching on my own so I'm throwing it out to the masses as to what can cause this so I know what, if anything that I need to replace.
