My computer froze the other day and I went to reboot it. When I did everything sounded fine but I never got a display, no error messages, no windows xp splash, nothing. I also had no indicator lights on either my keyboard or mouse. I tried using the windows xp boot disk to no avail. Surge protector installed and checked out fine. I am using the monitor now so I know that's not the problem, I am wondering if it has anything to do with the motherboard. I can't get BIOS or anything to come up, it acts like it's working, just brain dead.

Does the power supply fan turn? Do you here a single POST beep?
Sounds like a bad power supply. I'd check that first
