A computer of ours had been "fried" with static electricity and stopped working. The static was from a cradle hooked to the front USB ports. I just simply touched the cradle and a zap caused the computer to turn off. Since then it will not do anything.
Looking inside the computer there is a small green light on the motherboard when it is plugged in. I have tried to remove everything from the motherboard except the CPU and turn it on, but nothing will start. I have tried another power supply which I know works and also the chord from the motherboard to the on/off switch on the front of the computer but nothing is happening.
Does this mean the motherboard and/or the CPU must be the culprits? I would like to debug it further to determine what the problem is but am not sure of the process. Thanks!
