I need help.

My computer starts. It runs, but nothing happens, the monitor doesn't work, but I don't think it's the graphics card because the lights on the keyboard don't flash anymore either. What do I do?

Strip the pc down to basics, i.e. one stick of memory and the graphics card, then try to start it. If it works then slowly add all the bits back until you find what's causing the problem then replace the trouble maker. If it doesn't start in stripped down mode you need to start looking at the core components like the PSU the MOBO or the CPU and they're a bit more problematic, though swapping the power supply is fairly easy.

Suggest rather than "I need help" as subject matter, you try and use a few words as we all have different skills
