PC monitors don't recieve signal and...

Specs: Windows 7, 2.8 ghz quad / 8 gb ram
As the title says, my monitors aren't getting any signal and not all the fans start up inside the case, the only fan that starts up is the one for my power supply and my GTX 460(gpu)

Before this all occured I shut down my pc for the night and when I went to bed and the screen said shutting down (10 mins later after clicking shutdown)... I didn't think much of it and just decided to head up to bed

I came down for school and it was still shutting down (8 hours later) so I hard shut it down, when I got home from school and tried to start it up, the power button lit like normal but neither monitor received signal and the fans weren't spinning

Any advice? Is my mobo fried like my brothers did (exact same build & purchased same time, just I had a GTX 460 and he had integrated video card), he took it down to the shop and they said his mobo had fried (but he tried to do some 'fixing' of his own, so I assume he broke it worse XD)

His 'died' about 3 months before mine did

You will have to start some diags.

Check or replace power supply with known good.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

The problem is that the video card isn't sending a signal to the monitor. You've told us very little about your system. You need to list the system specs in a LOT more detail.

"Windows 7, 2.8 ghz quad / 8 gb ram

- Win7 64-bit? It better be with 8GB RAM
- 2.8GHz quad? AMD or Intel? Which model?
- 8GB RAM? DDR2? DDR3? what speed?
- motherboard make/model?
- power supply? Which make/model, wattage? What are the amperage specs, especially on the +12v rail? A gaming system with a GTX 460 requires a hell of a good power supply, not some cheapie no-name brand. Like jefro, I'm guessing this is where the problem is.

Any verdicts you guys can assume yet? I don't have money to buy a bunch of things so I kinda need a good idea what to buy to replace it... unless the motherboard died...

If it's something as simple as like the Hard drive corrupted and won't do drivers for the monitors and isn't so far gone that the computer can't detect any errors in it.... cuz I can probably buy a new hard drive I just need to know what you guys would suggest the problem is
