Ok so heres the prob.

up until a few days ago my comp wa working fine, then I started plang warcraft III again which started freezing my comp leaving the only solution - reset, which has happened several time whilst playing. This was fine as it worked again afterwards.
But....

Today I was playing reset it and left scandisk to run, which froze. I reset again and my comp didn't come back on. At the moment Ive got a comp which wont boot.

The HDD is fine cuz I used it in another comp and it booted fine.

The fans are going, both the CPU fan and graphics card fan.

I got a power light and a HDD activity light.

But when i turn it on It doesn't even beep. At all. I wish it did cuz it would tell me what was wrong but its silent apart from the fans.

Plz help cuz i dont have a clue.

What operating system?

When you say it wil not boot do you mean you see PSOT screen but then it will not let Windows boot.

Or you see nothing at all on your screen?
