Do you get any beeps from your machine.
Also could you post some details about your computer as this will help in a possible diagnosis.

My pc is a Packard Bell Imedia 5075 AMD 2600+ with 256 Ram. I put pc into sleep mode but it would not boot up after.It does not beep at all.
My screen and keyboard work ok on my old system Pent 3.

The same thing happened to me on saturday and a I remembered your post.
It turned out that the processor had come loose so I took the heatsink & fan of took the processor out, replaced it put so more compound on then replaced the H/S & fan and it is working fine now.
I had exactly the same as you described in your post, so you may have to do what i have just done.
