Firstly my computer:

It is a Dell XPS420 with windows 7
4GB of Ram , Intel core 2 quad core processor ( not sure of exact model )

Right the issue I am having is that yesterday I left the PC for a while and as usual it went into stanby mode. When I came back to the PC I couldn't wake it up so I held down the power button until it turned off. then the problem really began. I hit the power button to turn it on and all that happens is the fan goes absolutely mental and nothing whatsoever apears on the monitors, not even the BIOS screen appears. Typically the dell manual doesnt help at all.
If it helps out of the 4 diagnostic lights on the front only 1,3 and 4 light up (this combination not being in the dell book). I have disconnected all power and left the PC overnight and tried rebooting it and have also removed all 4 ram cards dusted them off and resat them. Neither of these ideas have done anything. As for removing and reseating other components its very difficult as the insides of the machine are rather insane.

I hope theres enough details here for people to know what I am going on about if not please say and I will supply whatever details I can.
