Various desktop pc problems I have

First problem came a long time ago, my graphics card went completely kaput, which is such a long story to tell I can't tell you here.

But now bew problems have arisen, first my PC was shutting down and restarting out of the blue, but a Windows memory dignostic managed to hold it down until a few hours ago when I'm typing this, I tried to attempt to do the memory dignostic again but it unfortunately stopped, (atleast I thought it did)

And NOW it won't turn on at all, well, it does but my monitor light never goes blue and my PC doesn't make a beep noise, which it always does when I turn it on, but the lights inside the PC glow though, and the fans were spinning.

I cleaned out some of the dust in the PC itself all the while unplugging all the usbs that were connected to the back of the PC, and it turned on then but I didn't manage to hit F8 in time to get to the repair my computer menu.

And now it's back to not turning on to an extent again, please tell me what's happening, I'm really at my wit's end now.

Answer this question I have this problem too

First, let's start by what computer you have and the beep that your computer your computer makes can be used to diagnose what is wrong " The computer POST (power-on-self-test) checks a computer's internal hardware for compatibility and connection before starting the remainder of the boot process. If the computer passes the POST, the computer may give a single beep (some computers may beep twice) as it starts and continues to boot. However, if the computer fails the POST, the computer will either not beep or generate a beep code that tells the user the source of the problem."

Well I forgot to mention that this is a custom built pc, and there's absolutely no beeps at all when I try to turn it on


Well, what motherboard do you have? if it is not powering on at all try and replace the power supply and see if that solves some of your problems. There is also the possibility that you have fried your RAM which is common when you have power supply issues.
