Auugh PC will come on but not boot!!!

I don't know but hope its not either a graphics card or motherboard issue but since my son played his Steam game on my PC it stopped working. I was so upset! This PC really wasn't meant for gaming! It was really a basic 500gb hard drive, 4g of memory on Windows 7 Enterprise all on an Acer motherboard but the case is hp. What the point was when I turn it on I see the the blue light come on and hear the sound like its coming on, 2 fans are running but I turn on monitor it says 'power safe mode'. Can't be the monitor because it works with my Hubby's laptop. Why isn't it booting up correctly? Could this be a graphics card issue? I'm not gonna waste anymore money buying stuff for this computer when I can just get another tower. Please someone help ASAP! Auugh PC will come on but not boot!!!

OK sure I'll try to do that. But I am on Tapatalk so does that mean I will have to access this forum in a web browser I'll be able to access that?
