Heeeeeeeeeello peoples!

My computer turns on and everything powers up ok, but it doesn't even boot into BIOS, the keyboard/mouse lights flicker once but then turn off and stay off, and it just seems like no information's getting sent out of the computer.

I've tried reseating every cable and component (CPU, video card, both sticks of RAM, etc.) in the computer, I've tried clearing the CMOS, and I tried every combination of starting up the computer with various components in and out as possible. Any idea on what I should do? Is it the motherboard?

Thanks mis amigos,

The motherboard is a posibility but it could also be the video card or the RAM. If you have intergrated graphics on your board then use that instead of the video card. Test the computer using one stick of RAM at a time. Make sure to test each indvidual stick.

Let me know how it goes.
