I am having the issue of whenever I turn on the computer, I get only a black screen. No booting, no nothing. When I turn it on, the fans come on and it sounds like it's starting to do something, but never does. Now in the days leading up to this, it had started shutting off or going into a sleep-like mode, randomly, where the screen would go black and the light on the power button would flash. Normally, when this computer goes into sleep mode, you just hit the power button and it comes back up. In these instances, though, the only way you could get it out of this sleep state, was to unplug the computer for a few moments, then turn it on. I have replaced the old power supply, which I do believe was bad, because the fan would not come on. I have also replaced the little battery on the motherboard, as well. And I've checked and rechecked all of my connections, but nothing seems to work, other than the fans. Even the mouse, which is a USB/infrared type, doesn't come on.
Thanks for any info you can pass along.
