Hello all, I am new here, but I have read some of the other posts and I hope some here can help. Now I'm good with software and mod issues, but hardware for me is a problem so here it is. I have a Velocity Micro ProMagix T1000 and yesterday I experienced a power outage long enough to drain my UPS. After power was restored, the computer will not come on, but there is a red LED flashing near the SATA connections. I've tried resetting the BIOS with the COM jumpers but nothing. Does anyone know what could be the problem? Motherboard, power supply or CPU? Help please, I'm lost without my computer. Thanks for whatever help you all can give.

You might try resetting the bios by unplugging the box from the power source and then pulling the battery. Leave the battery out for awhile, reinstall, plug it back in and power up. Looks like you've got nothing to lose at this point.
Good luck

Does the power supply fan turn on and remain spinning?
In the back of the machine there should be a switch by the power cord
Turn it off and then back on

No, unfortunately there is no action other than the red LED. Now I did not mention before that I did change the power supply to an Antec 750watt supply.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but if the power supply fan isn't spinning it's bad

What OS are you using?
When you say installation disk, I assume you do not have a retail Windows CD?
