Check all the hardware properly once. Try connecting to another monitor.
If the Hard disc didnt go boom you can always try with a SATA to USB
This is a general search link for you. It gives all results for 2.5,3,3.5 inch drives. Check properly before taking a product.
Amazon General Search
This is for 3.5" HDD which will be in CPU's. I though this would serve you well, as this fits for all as they advertised.
Amazon Specified Search
I don't know where you are hailing from so these are general searches for USA based amazon.

Tie first place to start, if you're comfortable with it, is to open the computer case up and reseat (pull out and put right back in) all of the Memory and any cards (i.e. Video Card).  While you have the case open check to see that all of the cables are connected.  You can also reseat the cables, but memory and cards are the more likely suspects.

Besides the usual items already mentioned, check that the heat sink and fan on top of the CPU are properly seated too.

Open it up.

Check that all the cards are seated correctly.

Check for parts on the bottom of the tower, heatsink etc...

Check memory is in their sockets correctly.

Have you backed up today? Did you backup your backup?
