Standby

Hi there hope you can me. I've put my desktop in standby using the task manager and now it wont wake up. On hitting the power button fans engage and lights come on ending on green which assumes the computer is working ok but with no signal to the monitor.
I've switched off and on several times but no change. I've been told it could be my graphics card?? I have two in my Packard Bell, it was quite a powerful machine when I bought it in 2005.

OS xp fully updated.

Before I investigate the graphis card, was wondering if it could be the monitor DVI cable?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Are you running Spyware Doctor by any chance?
