Last night I did a routine yearly hardware cleaning of my case: case fans, video card heatsink, CPU heat sink, power supply and a general compressed air cleaning of the case. After finished I returned the RAM sticks and video card to the rightful slots on the motherboard and powered on. My PC will power on fine but refuses to boot. It responds like if you would attempt to boot without a monitor plugged in although I get a full black screen on my monitor rather than the box saying it isn't connected to a computer. I have tried making sure the video card and RAM sticks are in securely but to no avail. Any Suggestions?

I am trying to follow you with what you posted.

Does the monitor show any indication that it is powered on?

Try a setting button for monitor to make sure it is powered on.

Make sure you re-hooked the monitor up to the video card's port.

Does the computer POST a beep at all?

Does any lights light up on the computer?

Before I go overboard with more questions try checking what I already listed above.

Post back if problem not solved.

Thanks for your reply. When I turn on the PC the monitor goes straight to a black screen, the monitor is on default settings is turned on and was working perfectly moments before I conducted the cleaning. I have attempted re-hooking the monitor to the video card port multiple times though the problem persists. The computer does NOT POST, it powers on the fans run and thats it. The only lights that light up on the computer are a LED side panel fan and the green light from the ethernet port indicating the port is working. Any other suggestions? Also Thanks again

Please close this thread, issue has been solved. For those wondering the solution I just hadn't reinserted my RAM all the way.
