    You say you've been doing some work... do you mean work updating your pc, and such, or do you mean doing work with it? In case you've altered it, please give some details. The No Signal message can be almost anything, I've had it with a broken mobo and a broken CPU.

    If you have made changes, one way would be to go back the road, and if it works, do one change at a time.

    You need to get a new psu. If it was overloaded, or something dramatic happened, it may start working again by unplugging it both from the pc and wall plug, and then giving it, say, a few minutes, then plug it again. I once had such an incident, and my psu went alive.

    Another thing is, if the warranty is still valid. In that case, contact the seller.
