My HP Pavillion 7965 suddenly will not boot up and does not even POST.

I have check the power supply and this is good but the machine does not POST. HD is okay also as I have fitted to a spare machine and it is fine.

I am running XP home with and AMD 1800+ CPU and 256MB 266 DDR Ram.

Any suggestions??

Try checking the memory sticks, making sure they are fully seated. Remove and re-seat them if necessary.

Before doing this make sure that not only is the PC turned off, but also turn off at power socket as well. Modern motherboards still have power going through to them even though the PC is turned off.
