Hi. Last night i logged off as normal and went to bed. This morning My computer had the (green, amber lights on and the cd rom light flashing) Im running win xp home, service pack 3, on an asus p4p 800e deluxe motherboard with 1gb of ram.
I tried switching off at the mains and waiting a couple of mins, still no different. Tried booting from the win xp disk, wont boot, opened the case and remade the connections to the HDD (Maxtor Diamondmax sata 150, 160gb) but still the same. So i appear to be in this situation with the power light (green on amber light on and the cd rom light flashing, and the computer wont boot, although the fans are running, Any suggestions Please

Dead or dying PSU I think...See if you can borrow one to test the theory before you buy a new one.
