need help to locate broken part.
Last Saturday evening a storm went through and somehow damage my computer, which is connected to a PSU. I'm trying locate the damaged part. I've eliminated the Hard Drive, Video card, monitor and power supply. I believe it's either the CPU, Motherboard or memory. I could not test them out since I do not have any compatible computers that would take a DDR memory, a Intel D865PERL motherboard nor the CPU.
Here is what happened, when the storm went through, the computer shut off. When I start the computer, the power goes to the DVD ROM drives and I can open and close the drives. The power to the fans for the cpu and the case operates. But nothing appears on the monitor. The power switch light on the monitor changes to red instead of green, when it is receiving a signal. There is no beep sound when I turn on the computer. I believe there is usually a beep sound when the computer is first turned on.
The power supply is about a year old (X-infinity 500w) and I've tested that on another computer, the same with the Hard drive. I've used another AGP video card from an older computer to test it on this mother board and it still does not display anything. So I assume it's either the CPU, Motherboard or memory.
Is there a way to further narrow it down to which component?
