I built this computer less than 2 years ago. It's been working great then last night it just quit while I was running it. It went out like I pulled the plug.
All it does when I press the power button is flash the two lights on the front of the case and the red light on the motherboard in a dim pulsing rythem.
I've tried switching power supplies unplugging all cards and memory and powered things like hard drives and optical drives. One at a time, same result. I mean if I pulled the memory I should get memory missing beeps.
I've reseating the cpu. Only thing I get it the pulsing light. I have a quality antec PS and run on protected circuits. I had other things plugged in and nothing else went off, so it wasn't a surge or anything.
Is the flashing a symtom of a bad cpu? or bad motherboard?
Anyone had similar experience?
The is a 2.8gig P4 800fsb with 2gig ram. This is an Abit IS7 board.
