ok my daughter says she only kicked the bottom cords and hit the shut off button but now my computer won't work, I've reconnected everything, makes lots of beeping sounds, monitor says no signal but light on front of computer is light up with lock button, no clue how to fix it , any suggestions? Put in cd's and nothing works, mouse won't even light up.

Maybe a loose connection in the case.
If you feel confident open it up and check all cabling to make sure everything is connected as it should be ;)

Describe the "lots of beeping" for us as best you can. For example continuous beeps, one long 2 short beeps repeating.
