Question about Computers & Internet
First, check to see if there is dust in the CPU, especially around the fan. Remove the cover (take all safety precautions). Remove all dust with a computer vac.
With the cover still off, power on your system. See if the fan spins. There are often two fans. Check which fan is not spinning.
If not the fan, hold the power button in for several seconds to discharge the residue power.
Remove all the PCI cards, the video card [if applicable], memory, all peripherals, disconnect the data and power cables to all the drives. Check that the front panel cable is connected to motherboard. With nothing else connected to the system, reconnect the power cable and power the system on.
If you do not get any beep codes or diagnostic lights on the back panel, then it would appear that the motherboard has died.
Hope this helps.
