|Model: Aspire M5641|
Graphics card: GeForce 8400GS 512MB
OS: Windows 8 Customer Preview
Here's how it usually goes down, I put the PC to sleep right before I get to sleep myself and turn it back on the next morning. I do this every day and each day I get a blue screen error which I assumed had something to do with the OS being a customer preview, to which my solution was to hold down the power button to turn the PC off and turn it back on.
This worked gloriously for about 2 months, but this morning it went all wrong.
I turned it off by holding down the power button as usual, tried to turn it back on and I get nothing, no display, no lights, no CPU fan not even the PSU fan. But I could hear a continuous faint high pitched noise from the PSU.
Tried booting it up without the RAM, HDD, CMOS battery and anything else that I could think of but nothing worked.
Wired up the Green cable from the PSU to the Black one which got the PSU fan running.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
