|One day last week I shut down my PC as normal in the afternoon. In the evening, when I went to start it up again, it was dead. |
The fans spin, the CD and DVD lights come on (and I can open and close the drawer) and there are power LED's showing on the motherboard. However, the monitor shows "no signal" and goes back into standby mode and there are no beeps from the motherboard.
On reading through previous posts I have checked all connections to the hard drives, CD/DVD drives, tried a different hard drive, removed and reseated the RAM, changed keyboards and checked all connections to the back of the tower, reset the CMOS and bought and fitted a new power supply. All to no avail and now I am stumped.
I suppose it could be a dead CPU but am reluctant to buy something I can't afford "just in case".
I'd be grateful if anyone could suggest anything else I may have overlooked?
