my computer is 2 years old and has an Intel P4 lga 775 on a foxconn 865PE7AF-S ATX motherboard.
I went to turn the computer on, and did not boot.
on investigation i found that the CPU fan runs, the on led on the Front of the case is lit and the internal fans run.
however, the monitor does not come off standby, the CD ROM and writer drives wont eject, the pair of hard drives (IDE) are inactive.
i suspected a power supply fault.
however, the cooling fans run off the red power wire and the hard drive cooling fans run off the yellow wire.
so i was confused as to why there being power i could not eject the drives of no action on hard drives.
just to be sure i swapped the power supply and it made no difference.
now i am scratching my head ??????
any assistance would be greatly welcomed
