I switch on my 3-yr old Emachines 420 (XP Home SP1) this morning to find it doesn't start up properly, or at all in fact. Power is certainly flowing to it (the fan activates, the processor light is on but does not blink to indicate any activity) but there is no monitor feed, and there appears to be no response whatsoever from the hard drive. I have checked all connections and everything looks fine.
I'm hoping this is due to some minor mechanical fault such as a blown wire or whatever, and that the drive is still intact. Please tell me this isn't likely to be a crash.
