The screen just went blank

Question

My system used to work just fine. Its been working just fine for about a year now, but a couple of days ago, while I was on my computer the screen just went blank. The fans were still running, and the power was still on, but the screen just went blank. I tried restarting, but all I got was a blank screen. I heard no beeps after the memory check, and it never even gets to BIOS. All I get when I turn on the power are the fans running. After I let it sit for a while and try to start it up, it will start and everything will work fine for a couple minutes, and then the screen just goes blank again. I thought it could be the moniter, but it works fine for another computer. Then I noticed it never even beeps when I restart. Wondering what the problem is. If you could help, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your time, Steven Vang.
