My PC is dead...

Technically it's never alive...I've just installed freeBSD 7.2 with gnome. Both of them work perfectly until last night. I used "suspend" first time in FreeBSD, and this morning when I turn my pc on, the display power LED does not turn green.

I have nvidia Geforce 7700GT graphic card, and yes, I've installed the official driver from nvidia. However, i don't think it's the problem cause I change VGA to original embedded port on motherboard, and the display still does not work. Display seems like simply not getting any input signal.

PS. I can hear the hard drive runs like the same before...

Can anyone help me?

Shut down

Switch off at mains plug

Hold power button for 30 seconds

Unplug all usb peripheries (except mouse / keyboard if fitted)

Switch mains back on and reboot, see what happens.

I have tried this several times. The hard drive runs normally, but display's LED is still orange, no output...

1. Remove refit graphics card, retry

2. reset CMOS to default by removing CMOS battery for a couple of minutes, retry.

I've done that. I used 2 monitors, one connect with nvidia vedio card, another connect with motherboard VGA. None of them work.

I took the battery out, and restart. Still gives me nothing...

Double check no disks in drives (this ones caught me before now)
