I've got a friends PC here. s/n 045232120694. http://support.packardbell.com/uk/
gives exact specification.
When you press the power button at the front, nothing happens on the screen. the monitor never switches to the green LED, nothing is displayed.
I've tried removing all periperals and everything that isn't power/video but it makes no difference.
I've tried a different PSU, but still no luck.
I've tried different memory. No luck.
I've tried CMOS reset, both by removing the battery and by using the Jumper.
Tried a new battery.
The fan whirrs away on the processor, but other than that it's lifeless.
The Power LED on the front is on, and red.
There is a small green LED on the motherboard which is an ASUS P5S800-VM/s.
I'm guessing it's the motherboard. I don't have a processor I can swap into it to try.
1. Do you think I'm right?
2. Is there a new motherboard I could buy that would accept the processor/memory combination? Perhaps from ebuyer?
3. What effect will the Tatoo (thing) have if I replace the board.
