Most likely the power supply went and took out the motherboard as well. Read the link

So, lets say that you have double checked all cables, and everything is plugged in properly. When you hit the power switch on the case, do you hear the computer start then shut down several seconds later? Does the computer refuse to do anything but power a motherboard LED? Also, did the computer (or the person carrying the computer) bump into anything while moving it? The most minor bump can cause many problems.

I would try replacing the power supply with another one from a working PC, but just to make sure that the power supply unit is the problem. If it isn't, make sure all heatsinks are locked down appropriately and making full contact. Other than that, I don't know what you can do.

Moved my computer to another room and when starting up the monitor has no power. I tried changing cords and outlets and still no power. Is this the end of the line?


It may have been coincident. For a 4 years old monitor, the power supply may have failed.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed Gateway monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Moved the router to a different room and now it wont work


check the physical connection to the router. Make sure that the modem and computer are connected properly and there is no loose connection.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Sounds as if your monitor is not receiving a signal from your video card. In all likelihood, the video card came unseated during the move. Open the case and re-seat the video card, that should do the trick.

Write back if that does not solve the problem.

Wont turn on, nothing.... Power supply is good


Replace the power-cord.

Wait until midnight, and turn out all the lights in the room, so that's dark in your computer room.

Turn on the monitor, and see if you get any light and/or any lamps (green? yellow? red?)

Try a different monitor attached to your computer.

Try your monitor on a different computer.

Keyboard not working-no power


Double check in the ends of the plug to make sure you did not bend or break any pins when you plugged them back in.

If you did then it is quite possible you need new and that you should also check the sockets on the back of the computer to make sure they are not damaged either.
