How did you check that power was going in, I wonder.
I rather imagine that something overheated and that produces your condition; resetting the BIOS is a likely solution rather than a problem, but you want to recreate the old settings....

   Are you not getting a beep code?

You should try to carefully reseat your videocard, and have your speaker hooked up so you can hear a beepcode if you get one.
I might suspect your power supply was overused also; unplug it a while and/or try a spare (being careful to replug the videocard too.)
Then make sure things are cooled right before playing again.
Killer app indeed.

Monitor will turn on but no matter what I plug into it it brings up the message check signal cable

undo the cable to the computer and turn it around and refit. If still nothing, turn off the pc by holding in the on/off switch. Remove the power lead and leave for a couple of mins. plug in again and try. If still nothing borrow someones monitor and try that. If still no good the the graphics card has had it. If the motherboard has internal graphics the just buy a cheap card and fit it and use that. If the pc has its own graphics card then remove it and refit it. Sometimes poor contacts make this happen.If still no good then replace the graphics card.

Computer stop running 10-20 min after start

Usually this will happen due to an overheating problem. I would check ALL of your fans and make sure everything is working properly and that you are not overclocking anything that would cause issues as well.

Startup problem

It has to be your M/board battery.
I had a similar problem and fitted another M/board battery and it fixed it
What is happening when you first turn it it on and it does not start and leave for 10 mins then reboot the battery has slight charge enough to boot computer
I would ensure you M/board battery is fitted correctly and that the fittings for it are good

Pc crashes, mostly after playing a game for a bit

Sound like it a heat issue perhaps? Monitor your cpu and gpu temps during game using rivatuner.

Are you running anything overclocked at all?

Try running orthos for 8hrs or occt for 2hrs to see if your pc is stable. (and monitor temps too)
