I'm new to this site, and need your help desparately (me without computer = me without oxygen; it hurts). Here's the problem:
I was surfing the net when a small mechanical "click" came from my computer. Immediately, the monitor stopped receiving signals, and blacked out. The power continued to run, but nothing else happened. When I restarted the computer, there was no POST, no beep, and no display. The optical drives did the usual spin-up, but after that, there was nothing. Any ideas as to what could be wrong?
My system specs are:
Gigabyte 8KNXP motherboard (dual bios, dual power system)
Intel P4 3.0 Ghz 800 fsb
2 x 512MB Kingston DDR PC3200 RAM
ATI Radeon 9600 graphics card
2 x 120 GB Western Digital IDE HDDs
Creative Audigy 2 ZS sound card
So far I have tried:
reseating RAM and booting
removing RAM and booting
reseating all cards and plugs
Thanks in advance!
