As you seem to not be a total novice with electronics, I would suggest you try unplugging everything with in the computer apart from the big plastic (Molex) connector from the power supply.
So unplug hard drive, cd/dvd drive, all pci cards, monitor and any memory.
PLEASE MAKE SURE THE PC IS OFF WHEN DOING THIS AND TURN OFF AT THE MAINS>
Turn your pc back on, you will hear a beep, nothing to worry about, its because you have nothing connected yet.
One by one start to connect the components back in the unit.
All this is doing is fault finding to see if its hardware related.
might be worth connecting your hard drive 1 at a time if you have more than 1 but the one with your operating system needs to go in first.
Add the ram 1 stick at a time aswell incase it the memory thats gone faulty.
Just remember to be careful with static if you can..
Check your graphics card aswell if you have added one:
Everything that I have read so far points to a graphics card failure..
