Help!

N new build PC running XP Home SP1, AND1700+ CPU, 256 SDRam with a 32bit AGPcard has suddenly stopped working.
When I swith on the LED flsah and the all fans run but that is as far as it gets no beeps or display.
I have tried a different graphic card but same thing. I have also removed memory modules one a time the same with drives but no joy.
Any suggestions??

You can strip the machine down to just processor (with cooler ,of course) and memory and you should get a beep when booting up. If the fans work but nothing else and no beep; nothing on the screen then I would suspect the motherboard or possibly the cpu. If you can return to the dealer where you bought the stuff can he check these for faults.

Also try taking out the CPU and refitting it - sometimes reseating the contacts will work.

I had something similar which turned out to be a motherboard problem concerning compatability with the memory.
