Model s3541.uk - on pressing the power button, beep sounds for 15 secs - nothing appears on screen. After 10 secs quiet, beep repeats. Everything secure/reseated. Can I assume it's the mobo. If so, how do I find a correct replacement. Thanks
Another thought - the problem could be Overheating - being a small case makes this a possibility, especially if the inside has not been de-gunked in a while. Clean out all dust etc, especially around any fans and vents.
Thanks. Did clean the dust out yesterday (wasn't too bad). Have tried without RAM - same result. Different keyboard to the one normally used. Can't access anything - beep starts immediately the power button is pressed. Have found a source for the mobo (if it proves to be that) fromlink text

As to the last post in the Link I gave, you will not get nothing without CPU as that makes everything work. So you will not get no beeps. But you could try some heat paste under the CPU after cleaning the old off it
