While partitioning an external HD, my computer went dead. It does turn on, but I cannot boot it up with the boot disk as the CD drive doesn't seem to spin up.

There is no monitor display. The fan does jog one time and then quits.

Is there another way into the OS?

Windows Vista 64 Home Premium

Thank you,

If the fan is not spinning then you probably have a power supply issue. Check the voltage output on the PSU using a voltmeter.

Thank you, Raptor_pa. I'm trying to get a heads up prior to calling the warranty company.
