I have a dell 9300 which is not used very often. how i tried to boot the cpu and the results are as follows: the num lock, caps lock, the other one lock light flashes. the power light comes on and i think that is the hard drive light to the right of power also flashes. I can hear the fans spinning. I have also tried to reseat every connection from keyboard and video card. I do not get a response from the LCD at all meaning no DELL with white bar below. i have also tried booting with one RAM mod in place and with no mods in place. With both tries i get the same result. i know from experience that if everything is working and there is no RAM in place the cpu will sound a loud tone which i did not receive in fact i received no tones at all. With all of that is there something else i could try or is it that the mother board has gone belly up on another dell for me? Or could it be that it just thinks its too hot and can not cool down?
