Computer was having heavy hiccups where it would start to reboot when running semi-intensive programs. I was going to reformat HD in a few days, and start over. But now the computer screen suddenly went black, if I reboot, nothing comes on the screen, and I can't get into BIOS. I hear nothing, no beeps, no post. The HD light comes on, stays solid, and goes off. and the floppy drive doesn't light up . Everything seems to be powering up. I reset the CMOS jumper, changed the CMOS battery, but still no post.
My CD and DVD drives light up, so I put in my XP install disk hoping to do a repair or install from that, but still no boot, just black screen and no beeps.
Computer was running well up until the hiccups, anti-virus was up to date, spyware, adware was under control.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
