does any thing show on the screen when you turn it on?
do you hear any sounds coming from the computer like BEEPS or the sound of the Fans spinning up?
Have you checked the power to the Monitor?
Have you tried another monitor?

Need a hole lot more.

Chances are either your power supply has failed or your CPU fan is not working. In either case it is going to involve you opening the case. If you are not ready for this take it to a repair shop.

Sounds like you harddrive may have gone belly up. What does it say on the Black Screen. Need the exact error on the screen to tell.

You may want to boot off of your Windows Systems disk and select R to get to the recovery console once there rund the CHKDSK C: command to see if there are any problems with your drive.

You could also run the Scan Disk (or let it run if it is trying to). Either way, your drive may have some bad sectors. If it does Windows will not boot until you fix them.
