Windows 7: PC won't boot after sleep.

PC won't boot after sleep.

Hey forum
I need help. I left my computer over night on in sleep mode. I woke up in the morning and tryed waking it up by moving the mouse, pressing keys on the keyboard and checked my monitor, but when I hit input, it search for signal and didn't find one an when to sleep again. I think I already tryed everything. I also pressed the power button in hope it will wake up but no. I did an emergency shut down later on. After i rebooted it shut off after 3 seconds and then rebooted itself into sleep mode automaticly.
In sleep mode, I can hear my driver running but the monitor still recievs no signal and the BIOS doesn't come up...
I've tryed everthing:
Unplug and reboot
Unplug every cable except the power cable and reboot
F8 while reboot
Taking out my graphics card and putting it back in and rebooting

Nothing helped.
I'm hoping for an answer.

Some tips.

What is the "emergency shutdown" you did? You did everything except pull the power cable?

On some systems, if you hold down the power button for 3-4 seconds it will go to standby.

Try holding the power button for much longer than that, like 8-20 seconds. And make sure the system is actually off (no lights, except for the network connection & no sounds).

If it still won't work it could just be that your monitor got burned out or isn't connected properly anymore - try connecting another screen, or reconnecting the current screen.

If that still fails, it might be another hardware component that gave the fritz, in which case you might hear a serries of beeps if the PC starts up. Let us know.

I did shutdown, pull the plug. Also pull the powercable on the back of the PC and also I've tryed holding the power button down for around 30 seconds... Nothing
If I pull the PSU and plug it back in and reboot it turns on for 5 seconds (No signal on monitor) and shuts down again, after 3s it boots automaticly itself and goes back into it's sleeping mode.

Usually I'd hear 1 beep out of my computer which would follow by the BIOS on the screen. But now when it boots it doesn't make the beep anymore and the BIOS doesn't come up ( No signal on monitor ), that way I can tell that it's not booting properly and that the error isn't in the monitor. It must be something with the system.

Anything else I should try?

problem with your power scheme maybe?might want to check it. If you it set to Balanced or Power saving then it shuts down the hard drives after 30 minutes.You can then push the power button to wake it up.
