Computer not doing anything

  Skuby 21:55 16 Dec 2008

Hi, I have a Compaq Presario Desktop PC running Vista. Up till yesterday it's been fine until the computer froze on the screensaver and did not respond to anything even CTRL/ALT/DEL and had to do a cold reboot. On startup had the usual message about computer not shutting down properly but did startup ok. It did this about 4 times but now when you switch it on it does nothing, the fans start, hard drive spins up and thats it, cannot get into bios & nothing on screen.
Any ideas ???

Sounds like the PSU as gone if its under Warranty take it back. As it may have done the Motherboard and CPU in

You could try this first remove the Plugs from Hard Drive and see if you can boot to BIOS
