I was enjoying myself, just putting a cd on the computer and browsing the internet, then when I looked up from texting someone, BAM BSOD....of course, I didn't write down the code >.< and I just tried to restart....nothing...bios don't load up, no beeps, nothing.
all the hardware boots fine (HD,drives,ect) but no bootscreen
So now, I took the hard drive out of my computer, and am now using it on my family computer. SO i know it's not the hard drive.
All I can think of is that the motherboard is hitting the side of the case, but I doubt that,

Have you tried re-seating all the memory etc? Taking out one stick of memory, swapping them etc? I presume because you took out your HDD you know how to change memory? :)

Thanks for the reply, and yes, I just tried your suggestion. Didn't work. thanks though!
I'm going to see if it is the power supply now. but I don't think it is. :)

It is very possible that the power supply unit is faulty. It gives you 12 volt for the electric motors (fans, Hd) but it doesn't give the 5 volt needed to run the electronics. Try to repalce it.

Nope, just tried a different supply in the computer and still nothing happened.
The good news is that I'm getting a new motherboard/psu/case tonight. :)
