Although the power lights still come on, I still get nothing but "no signal" on the monitor.
CD trays won't open.
No sound of system booting when power is disconnected and switched back on again.
No bios screen on startup (well, no startup)
No strange sound from HD or any error / warning message (before or after)
No responce on either keyboard or mouse
Fans are working and there is no smell of any burning on MB
Black monitor screen with error message "no signal or cable diconnected"
Have checked all cables and connections.
When I power up all the lights (keyboard, mouse, cd bays, usb drive, power mains) come on and flash only once.
All exept for the floppy drive.
The only two that stay on is the 2 mains power (one green one red) and DVD drive lights. Nothing on the keyboard ie caps lock.
Pc runs on XP
I've had a similar problem a few weeks before when there was a power fade, but then it was ok as soon as the power came back to full strength.
Any ideas on where to start looking for this problem, or suggestions on ruling things out.
