    First of all, if you have a moment put your system specs in your profile in UserCP. That will make it easier for all of us to help you now and in the future if you have other issues :toast:

    When you boot the computer, does it beep at you? It could be that the keyboard is no longer being seen and will not go beyond that point. It could also be that when the KB fell that it damaged another cable.

    Check all the wires again, when your keyboard fell where all the wires were plugged into the computer, it may have bent a few pins (my best guess). Check the cable that leads from your monitor to your graphics card to see if there is any damage.
    edit: Sorry Kreij, I basically re-iterated what you said without even knowing it :)

    Please mention whether ur board is using graphic card or onboard graphic card.

    If using Graphic card remove it and attach the monitor cable to onboard graphic card

    You probably bumped the video card out of it's socket - crack open the case and re-seat it. Assume you checked the cables first?
