Wonder if someone knows this problem.

I was busy working with a couple of applications that were CPU intensive.

Downloading file; fast forwarding through DVD; extracting a zip file

The machine then went dark as if there was a power failure (No power failure). (Casing light went off), but the front panel light was on. tried to shut down the machine with the power switch, however it did nothing, so I disconnected the power supply from the wall, left it for a minute and plugged it in again, no change.

CPU fan = Working
Green LED light on motherboard = Working
Power supply fan = Working
Casing fans (2 of them) = NOT Working :whistling: (If I unplug them from the motherboard and plug into the power supply they do work and light in the casing works as well - so it does not work from the mother board?)
Graphics card fan = Working
Screen = No signal, no boot, no nothing???

Please can someone help. Hope it is not serious

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. You could try removing all of the ram, then boot the computer. If you do not hear beep codes, the motherboard probably died. This assumes your system speaker is working.
