This is not related to my other threads, I'm referring to my computer here and not my laptop anymore.
It started a while ago when the USB and PS2 devices started becoming unreliable (sometimes starting up and sometimes not). Soon the PS2 wouldn't work with keyboards, and the mouse would often go undetected. I had to use a USB keyboard to get around the first problem.
After a while the screen started fading, and now the screen has gone completely.
The whole unit is unusable now. And it's not the devices, it's the computer. Maybe it has something to do with the ports? Can someone please help, this is urgent :)
I agree its likely to be the power supply, if it was only the USB and you had a lot of USB devices I would be inclined to think it might just be that you are trying to get more power from the USB than it can supply and would have recommended a USB powered hub, but that together with no display makes me thing that there isn't enough power for the fans, the motherboard, the hard drives, the USB items and the display. Basically its either failing or overloaded.
You could remove a lot of the devices and see if it will fire up with the minimum necessary items but even if it doesn't I would still be inclined to suspect the power supply, just because the fans are spinning means nothing, it only means that some power is getting to them it does not mean that there is enough power for everything else as well.
