Okay my son's computer starting freezing up a couple days ago. We found the fan on the heat sink wasn't working. We plugged it into another spot and got it working, but computer won't boot. We replaced the power supply and tried a new video card but nothing. When we turn it on the lights come on but no beep. The keyboard lights up quickly but then it doesn't light up again when you press caps lock or num lock. The monitor light blinks like the computer is in stand by. The screen is blank. I don't know how to troubleshoot if it's the motherboard or the cpu? Someone told me to try to restore default motherboard settings with jumpers or switches. I have no idea of what that is or how to do that. Any help would be welcomed. Thanks
