I've had my desktop computer for about 4 years now. It is an Acer Aspire T120c. Where I live, we were experiencing
a heatwave, and the moniter would freeze up. I booted and it turned on, and I began to watch something on youtube,
and the scrren went fuzzy and I was unable to shut down. I had to pwer it offthrough the tower power button. Once
it turned off, it would no longer turn on and boot up.
The power button lights up, and the CD drive still opens, and a few lights blink on start up as usual.
But, the screen is blank (but monitor works). All of the fans seem to go. The power supply fan runs, the other fan
runs too, at a frantic pace, and does not stop or slow down.
I can't boot from a CD, the keyboard doesn't turn on and neither does the mouse.
As far as starting up goes, there are No beeps or clicks to hint at harddrive failure. The hard drive is spinning. When
I try to start it up nothing comes on but the fan which goes on full blast until I turn it off.
I tried taking my IGB RAM out, and booted, but heard no beeps from the motherboard (in fact, during all this I heard no
beeps at all). I tried eraing the CMOS, but still the same. I'm thinking my motherboard is dead.
Otherwise, if everything seems to be going, what is stopping it from booting up?
Some specs: AMD Athlon XP CPU
System Memory DDR 266/333/400, 2 DIMM Slots, expandable to 2GB
3D quality audio system via onboard audio controller
High-capacity, Enhanced-IDE drive
Motherboard Model: Model-G74M
CPU-AMD Sempron 2.0 Ghz
Computer Version: R01-A3
320 G Western Digital
Any help would be greatly appreciated (but it seems that my MB is toast; though there is a litle yellow light that
glows on it when powered up).
