ok this is on behalf of a friend who was happily playing his pc yesterday before poof!! it went dead.
We tried to restart it with the power button, but the most that happens is the aux fans nudge about a 1/2 turn, as does the processor fan, and some lights blink for a second..no more. Nothing seems to startup or make any running noises whatsoever, and this process repeats until we turn it off.
Im no wiz, and neither is he..so we havent touched anything that we dont understand. Could something have overheated, if so what can we check? Visually everything looks ok on the surface...no black marks or burns!
Any help would be appreciated..oh and heres his basic spec
512mb Ram DDR400
256 Nividia geforceFX
...i can enquire further should anyone need further details! Thx
