|I was playing a game when I got a freeze with sound looping. Can't get it to boot up after that.|
Upon turning on the power it seems to past POST (single beep) but I never receive monitor input. Don't get any hard drive activity either.
Tried replacing and swapping out RAM, replacing graphics card, removing graphics card to use integrated. No luck.
Removing CPU, RAM or hard drives completely stops it from passing POST (no beeps). Same if I disconnect hard drives, connect DVD drive with boot disk.
USB ports are all powered, as are fans. My aftermarket CPU cooler runs for a second or so and then stops, but my stock fan runs as normal. Graphics card fans remain on full power (usually tones down after booting).
I suspect something's wrong with the motherboard, power supply or CPU, as everything else has been replaced or removed to no effect. Is there anything I can do to narrow it down further? I don't have any spare units to test with.
