Could be?

Question

Hi - I am a novice computer user and had my computer upgraded about 2 years ago. We have had no problems with it at all. We have been using it mainly for my son to play some games on and myself for Internet for studies, Yahoo Messenger and Microsoft Works - nothing too major or hi tech. I have checked with my son to see if he has downloaded anything or read any suspicious emails but he says he hasn't. The last time I used it I was on the internet on Yahoo Messenger and shut down as per normal. HOWEVER, I just tried to start it and the monitor remains blank even though the power light is on and the power light comes on the tower for the hard drive, the fan starts but it sounds like it only starts one programme then it doesn't do anything else. I checked my monitor on another computer and it works fine. I have taken out all the plugs and re inserted and put the power on again, but still nothing. Have you any suggestions. I have read that I could take the case off and check everything inside, but am a little hesitant due to my inexperience but I am willing to give anything a go. Thanks :-)
