Hi all

My computer started started to restart for no reason sunday night. On monday night, tried to start it with no POST (not a single beep) whatsoever. The AMD64 fan turns, the chipset fan turns and so does the PCI-Express card.

I am at a loss. I went out and bought a new PSU last night to see if that was the problem and still no POST.

I am at a loss guys/girls

Specs are Windows XP
AMD64 3000(socket 939), PCI-Express Graphics ATI600, 600Watt PSU, 180GB SATA drive and a 120GB PATA slave drive

"My computer started started to restart"

If PSU ok then above is symptoms of Overheat/ CPU failure
