Monitor will not wake up

Hewlett-packard Vista home basic
February 1, 2010 at 18:17:40
Specs: Vista, 248mb
I put the computer into 'sleep' mode. Keyboard 'sleep'.
The monitor screen darkened, but computer did not stop running. After waiting a while for it to shut dowmn I finally turned it off with the rear switch on the computer.

Today, on attempting to start the computer, the machine runs but nothing at all appears on the monitor screen.

Yesterday all was well and working fine. All connections are intact, and there is power to the monitor.

I just don't know where to start looking for whatever fault there is.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thank you,

I took out the RAM and blew all the dust out the slots and reseated them. When the video came back, i promised myself to never touch that sleep mode again.

Thank you for your help.
