System wont turn on?

Hi, my cousin has just rang me about her computer not "turning on". She can hear the PSU "swirling" and the indicator lights are working, but nothing is on the VDU (so really it will turn on, just you can't see what it is doing)...

I wont be able to see the system until tomorrow evening, as she lives quite far away.

She said SHE was the last to use it, and she turned the system off as usual. She thinks it could be the storm from yesterday, but I have to disagree as MY system was on all through the storm, and hers wasn't even plugged in.

So, what do you guys (and gals) think I should be looking for first? Dodgy Graphics Card? damaged cable ports?

As usual, thanks in advance.

checks that all connections to PC and peripherals are sound. Check fuses if there is a separate power supply for the monitor.
