Check cables.

Try monitor on another computer.

that the problem is with the PC.

Has the PC got a Graphics Card?

Could it, or one of the cables, have become loose?

Before you do anything drastic, make sure your cooling fans are still working.

Keyboard issues can throw up all sorts of unexpected issues.
fair test is to try another keyboard or just disconnect it and see if PC boots to welcome screen...
