Windows 7: URGENT! My baby (computer) died :(

URGENT! My baby (computer) died :(

This is really urgent if someone could help me asap it'd be great. I went to sleep last night with the computer on (Windows 7 7077) like always and this morning it's still on but none of the usb devices are working, monitor doesn't come back from sleep state but the fans on all the components are still spinning. I tried hard rebooting 3-4 times and still nothing. I let it sit and cool off for a bit and still nothing. Anyone know what the problem could be? I was thinking it was the motherboard but then wouldn't the ethernet light be off if the board wasn't working? The only thing on the computer the has been overclocked is the CPU which I took from 3.0ghz to 3.8ghz and it's been running fine on the stock cooler for the past 6 months almost and then bam it's like this. I don't think it could of been over heating as the temps usually run 30C at idle and 50-60C at full load and the side is off of it. Please help me figure this out I'm running around not knowing what to do because this is my life we're talking about

Thanks.

Silly question, have you tried in safe mode, or do you get no screen at all (not even POST)?

Good question Orbital Shark, you should get your boot up screen?
If not then it doesn't look good

I assume you have at least 2 ram sticks in there. Swap each one out then try, but from what you've written it would seem to be a mobo or graphics card issue.

No POST no nothing. Time to tear it down.

God I hope it's not the mobo or gfx card. I paid ~$250 for this gfx card

Does your PC make any 'beeps' when first powered up? (make sure it has an internal PC speaker connected, some ppl disconect them for a quite life)

If it beeps more than once, then them beeps are telling you which bit has problems.. so you need to count how many beeps are emitted.

Do you get any activity at all? Even if you get no display there may be some action going on (hd access). It does sound like something has blown out, does your MOBO have any form of on-board GFX? At least if it did it could rule out the GFX card being at fault.

LOL, Generator got there first with my first sentence

I unhooked everything and hooked just the mobo up and powered on. The cpu heatsink comes on, cuts off and then back on but it's always done that. Turned off and plugged the gfx card in and powered up. Both come on and sound normal. I hear no beeps as I've got no speakers, where would the internal speaker be on the computer?

Its should be where the power and reset buttons connect. see the piccy attached.
(EDIT: providing your mobo is still the Asus P5Q SE Plus as mentioned in your specs.)
