Did you try reseting the BIOS?

Disconnect the power, remove the computer case, look for a battery on the motherboard (like shown below). Remove this battery for at least five minutes. Then replace the battery, and reconnect the power. Reboot and see if it worked. You'll need to reset the system time and date.

I've had a problem before when I adjusted the CPU Speed, I think I got back in when I turned on pc power I turned on monitor, and it finally came back on, it took quite a few times, but it worked.
Yeah I read it can be the system board or setting cpu speed.
