1st of all the motherboard died, so we replaced that.
Next the DC jack socket on the sister board got damaged, so no sweat, we replaced that. Unfortunately the machine doesn't turn on at all, no life no nothing. I've checked round the board and I can see voltage there.
Now here's the wierd thing, after a lot of playing around, I removed the bios battery, gave it a few seconds to discharge then plugged it back in, I then plugged in the mains supply and all of a sudden the machine fired up, booted into windows no problem.
I shut down windows and then I'm back to square 1, machine won't turn on again, until I repeat the same steps.
Any1 got a vague idea as to what I can do next or what's causing this?
