I recently replaced a computer after it "died". what happenned was my mouse froze on the screen and I had no keyboard response. I held in the off button until it shutdown , but then when I went to reboot I had nothing going to the monitor. no signal at all. I tried the monitor on my other copmputer and it worked fine. I had no beeps during boot up and the hard drive ran continually. I have installed that harddrive in an external case and it seems to be working fine. I have scanned it and can find no virus's or anything on it. I had the power source checked and it was good. Could it be my mother board, video card etc etc. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If it boots to safe mode it could be the video card drivers

Actually it wouldn't boot to anything, the hard drive just continued running no matter what I did, tried all the keys for safe boot etc etc. nothing worked.
