Computer stopped displaying anything after blue screen

After updating iTunes, I was surfing youtube. All of a sudden blue screen. When I restart, I get nothing, no bios, no splash screen. My monitors don't display no signal as when I disconnect the cable but their buttons do flash as if there was no signal. All I got is a black screen and no beeps.

"no bios"

Let's try simple. My kid's old machine did that when some scanners were plugged in. Since Windows has yet to boot it was not a Windows errrror.

In this case we got lucky and unplugging the USB devices let the machine boot.

Good luck,
Bob
