No signal to monitor, urgent

  1. Hi, i moved into my university flat last night, turned on my desktop pc to make sure it was fine, it was, then turned it off. however this morning when i turned it on...the monitor just says 'no signal' and is black n then goes to standby. the desktop LEDs also dont come on, but the computer does sound like it is starting windows up from what i can hear. ive tried to get the monitor to work by doing the following (none of these have worked):

    - checked cables
    - used monitor on laptop (it worked)
    - reset cmos
    - taken battery out for half an hour and put back in
    - reseated RAM
    - reseated video card (6600gt)
    - taken out RAM one stick at a time
    - tried turning on with no CD-ROM, FLOPPY OR hard drives attached

    None of these have worked

    What can i do? i urgently need to do work on the computer. There is no other monitor port to try on the computer except a DVI connector one, my parents are posting up a VGA to DVI adapter which i should receive tomorrow however i have suspicions that this wont correct the problems. Also, the keyboard and mouse lights dont come on and neither do the LEDs on the front of the case.

    Thanks for any help!!
