No bios no boot no HD just CD lights up
Computer booted up fine one day next I see nothing on the monitor
It had done this a couple times before but I had reset it by holding down the power button for 5 sec then started it normally and it would work
Now i do the same thing and it just stays blank - the only thing that seems to be working is the CD/DVD drive - keyboard and mouse do not light up.
thanks for your help

Hardware diags or swaps with known working components is the next step.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
