    what about the mobo? are you hearing beep codes?

    check the power supply connections to see if they're still connected to everything...

    how do you know the HD is spinning? Are you going by LED indicators on the front of the case or by noises that you hear? If you take the cover off of the case, is your processor fan running?

    It sounds like to me you have a video problem.. check the cable from your monitor to your PC.. If that is ok, try swapping out the video card if you have a spare.
