When I turn on my pc it wont go past the boot up page, I've been told this may be a motherboard problem but not sure. Any suggestions would be great.

The motherboard seems OK as it is displaying signs of life. The Monitor should display something before booting up, which it is not.Please do the following.
1. Remove the RAM and reinsert the DIMMs into their sockets and boot up.
2. Disconnect the HDD data cable from the HDD and the motherboard and reconnect. Boot up.
3. Disconnect the monitor and reconnect. Boot up.
At boot up press F2 and set the PC to default settings. Boot up. Later when you want to apply your settings, keep noting down what you did when. Just in case.
remove the two rear screws and remove all the cards attached to the main board
unplug all the cables that connect from the drives to the board.
power on the unit
if the unit powers up, install one of the cards you removed and complete step 3
if the system does not power up, the last card or device activated will be your culprit and will need to be replaced or left out.
if you find that your system will not show a bios splash screen with all the other components removed, then you are looking at either a video, or power supply failure. Listen to your system for spinning fans and hdd activity. touch the hdd if you cant hear it when you power up the system, paying close attention to when the drive activates. It should activate almost immediatley, pause, and then run for a short boot period. if nothing, then if may be your power supply. you will not be able to see any lights at all, no light on the motherboard, drives, or power LED is the best indicator of a shot power supply
Hi, my name is ArmyMason, hate to tell you this, but it sounds as if you have a bad Processor. Did you recently experience a bad storm with lightning? Was their a lot of dust on the fan? Lightning could have struck the computer and killed the processor or excessive overheating of the processor could have also been the case. If it was a lightning strike I would contact the insurance agency and have them replace your computer. Reason I think its the processor is because you don't recieve any post and the fan spins for a second and then shuts off.
