Thanks for the welcome and thanks for yoiur help. When I turn on the power the CPU light does go and the re is the ususal motor/fan sound. No beeps or lights anywhere else- not even the ususal light to the cd writer.
Thanks so much once again.

hi
booting with a boot disk will not lose any info. on your hard drive it will just boot to a A:/ this just helps us if where the problem may be you will not lose any data.
