I came home last thursday from work and my computer was off, so i turned it back on but nothing happened. I could hear the fan start up for a fraction of a second but it no longer does that. The computer is running on a surge protector. No one claims to have been using it in my house that day. Everything else works like the monitor, mouse, speakers, but something in the case is not working. Their is no beep sequence or anything..literally nothing happens when i try to turn it on. i can see a light on the mobo so i know it getting power because when i disconnect the power cord the light dims away. The computer was custom build over a year and half ago. I've never had a problem like this before.
gigabyte GA-7VAXP rev1.1
AMD athlon XP 2100
512 mb ram
80 gig hard drive
windows XP pro
450 watt power supply
case has good cooling. I have not been monitoring the tempurature lately but about a month ago the case was running at normal tempuratures. the mobo has sensors on the CPu and somewhere on the case.
the only possible cuase i can think of is that i disconnected my iPod the night before and i might have shocked the PC or something but nothing happened that night that i noticed. It wasn't until the next day that i noticed it was off.
Any help would be great...thanks in advance.
