My desktop won't turn on. Actually, it acts like it is going to because the lights turn on but then turn off after a few seconds. The monitor light never turns green, the keyboard light does not come on. The mouse does seem to have power. The fans are running.
Is this a power supply? Or maybe a mother board failure? I have had memory problems when making a CD so I assume it could be a memory chip.
How can isolate the problem? Or, is there someone on this board that has a shop or can recommend one with fair pricing? Best Buy wants $60 fofr the diagnostic only and does not apply any of it the repair. I can repair it If it is a power supply or memory chip.
I just had the same problem. Disconnected the drives, pulled all but one stick of RAM, etc.. Decided it probably was the motherboard, so I RMA'd it with the egg.. I'll find out if I was right in a few days when the replacement arrives.
