Can't Figure Out A Problem


Recently i have been playing Fifa and Call of duty. During the play my pc would freeze but when i pressed the ESC it dropped down my menu. How ever it froze again when the menu dropped down. After 2 days, now i cant boot up my pc ,I checked the cables they are plugged in, monitor is working had it hooked up to another pc. Hard drives work, they turn on and run when the pc starts. Now i am looking at CPU and motherboard. But the mother board is flashing blue light, like it supposed to. Cpu runs also but here is my problem. When ever i turn on my pc , the monitor is in safe mode (saving energy mode). It will not come out from the saving power mode when i press keys or move my mouse. It just shut it self down to safe mode.

Any one had this problem or knows how i can fix it?
