Peripherals not receiving signal from PC?

When the PC is turned on it seems to power up as normal however I get a 'No Signal Input' message on the monitor and the keyboard lights don't go on. The monitor works fine when connected to another PC.

Does this mean the motherboard has gone?

"Does this mean the motherboard has gone?"

Not necessarily. It could be the monitor cable or your graphics card.

Not necessarily - could be a sign of dying PSU, or slight problem with RAM or Graphics card.

Or even, just a loose connection somewhere. Check ALL connections and if ok, remove and refit RAM sticks as a start.
