Windows 7: Help needed;odd issue

Help needed;odd issue

For starters I've got a Digital Storm 3.4 Gig OC to 4.5, 8 GB Ram, Dual Nvidia 570, 120 GB SSD, 1 TB HDD. I've had the computer 2 days, and have had no issues up until last night.

Last night I put my new computer in sleep mode for the first time. This morning, approximately 9 hours later I tried to wake it up. Moving the mouse did nothing, nor did tapping the keyboard. I hit the restart button on the rig, which worked fine, only now neither of my monitors wants to display. I've shut down and restarted several times now, checked all connections - everything is fine and the computer was running perfectly until this incident, I just cannot seem to get a display suddenly.

I have since hooked my old comp back up with no trouble; it is definitely not a monitor issue. I've hooked the new comp up to a new monitor, previously unused on this comp before, same results. Starts up fine; no visuals at all.

It has been suggested that SSDs do not like going to sleep, which I had no foreknowledge of and will certainly not make the mistake again if this is true, but in the meantime...my computer seems little more than a paperweight.

No matter how many monitors I hook up to it, it refuses to show anything. I have checked all components; everything is in proper position and seated correctly. Last night, no problems. Today? It will not display a thing on 3 different monitors, no matter how often I attempt to restart the computer.

Tell me there is a fix for this, and I'm just incredibly blind and missing it.

1. Did you try safe mode - maybe it will run on the generic safe mode graphics driver. Then you can go from there.
2. This SSD story is strange. I have SSDs on 5 systems and have never encountered such a problem

I can't see anything on any screen, and I'm not familiar enough with the new system to know what to press to get to safe mode, even assuming it would display for me to see there as well.

To safe mode you get if you keep tapping F8 after power-on. Should that get you into a screen, you could verify whether there are problems with your graphics driver or run sfc /scannow in cmd to try to fix defunct system files. But first you have to see whether the screen shows up.
