It will not boot up - the hard disk LED does not light or the screen come on, but I can hear the CD and floppy drives spin on power up.
I have tried restore disk etc but with no screen I can not see if there is any response.
Can anyone help.

Can you hook it up to a Monitor to see if it has booted up?

Yes I have, still nothing.

Sounds serious in that case :S. Does it have additional memory fitted? Is it seated properly? Can you do a voltage test on the power supply?
Make sure you earth yourself before touching any memory chips.

memory removed and checked,CPU reseated,Hard Disk connections reseated, floppy drive and CD drive removed. It's begining to look like the motherboard or Hard Drive.

PSU up the spout

PS if you have a Laptop battery in the Computer, remove it and try computer just with mains

Tried, still no good.

Yep looks like the PSU, but if you could beg borrow a stick of memory I would try that first
