My computer seems to be suffering. Last night I was on MSN, and it was working fine. Suddenly, MSN froze, but everything else was ok. I couldn't close MSN, so I opted to restart my PC. After 5 minutes of the computer sitting there without restarting, I hit the reset button. Now, my computer won't even boot to BIOS.
The PC has power, the fans spin, the DVD-ROM is working and flashing, but my monitor just keeps flashing black and white, my keyboard and mouse won't turn on, my comp won't boot to BIOS, and I'm not even getting any POST beeps.
I've tried disconnecting my HDD and DVD-ROM and just running the comp. with the processor and graphics card... still nothing. I then tried every variant of plugging and unplugging my graphics card, DVD-ROM, and HDD, still to no avail. I only have 1 stick of RAM, and I even moved that to a different slot... still nothing, not even POST beeps. My RAM LED indicator light is orange, but I can't remember if it was always orange or not.
I'm only using 1 HDD (Western Digital Caviar WD1600JB), and it's set for single or master... and my ROM is not connected to my HDD in any way, so cables don't seem to be an issue. I've gone through the entire case, making sure EVERY cable is plugged in securely.
I'm using a Gigabyte GA-8S661FXM mobo.

Any help?

I had a GigaByte K8N-Pro do the same thing. Never found a fix.

Also, I tried resetting the CMOS by taking out the battery for about 10 mins... still no luck.

Just a guess here but what about the power supply, maybe it has gone bad. Do you have another PSU you could try in the machine?

A friend is coming up Friday so we can try that... that was my initial assumption (that it was the PSU) byt everyone else seems to discard the idea...

sounds kinda similar to a problem I had. take everything out that isn't necessary to run the machine and try to boot it up. By your RAM light being solid, it sounds like it froze in POST and I had mine do that when I built it. I took every thing out and ran with only essentials until it boot. Then I put everything back in.

Good luck!
