My daughters pc will not respond when it is switched on. There is power going to the speakers via the kettle plug lead for the speekers, but Windows doesn't boost up at switch on. The monitor works as there is power going to it. The processor is a CYRIXIII,64ram,4gig hard drive,SIS530 CHIPSET. Win98,WinOffice2000 & 32ram have just been fitted in the last few months. It also has Norton Antivirus2001 installed. The CDrom does not respond either. PS PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN THANK YOU..........

firstly check the lead and fuse in the plug, check the switch on the back of the power supply if there is one, is the power supply starting?(fan spinning)
