While online suddenly the screen went dark and the fans turned on high- making the same sound they do when it first tirned on high, but remained on and the computer would not respond. Unplugging and trying again returns to the same thing, and I comfirmed that the monitor is working.

Any idea what happened, and if there's a way to fix it if its just a part replacement?

Detail ! Does the boot screen show up ? Your OS splash screen ? Or just nothing ? Does it do something if you press del, F1 or F12 while turning it on ? Does it beep when you turn it on ?

Did you try turning it off and on again?

Nothing works, tried ctrl alt del, turning on and off etc. Motitors remain black

First, try this: if your pc has a power switch at the back, switch that off but leave plugged in. Then hold the power button on the front in for a few seconds. Then switch back on at the back and see if it works.

If not, sounds like either your motherboard or power supply unit just went tits up. Easy mode: replace PSU; if it still does the same, it's the mobo.

This reminds me of when my fan blew a gasket. You'd probably need to replace it if there's nothing else wrong.

could be your video card that got overheated and damaged
