I have a three-year old Compaq desktop. The fan in the power supply unit stopped working and the computer shut off. I picked up a new power supply at Compuserve for about $30 and installed it. Now when I boot up, it only goes as far as the "post-up" screen. Windows XP does not boot up and the keyboard doesn't work. The hard drive is not spinning and the cd drive isn't working as well, so I can't use my boot disc.
What are the chances my harddrive failed when the PSU went? Since the post-up screen comes on, I'm thinking the motherboard is still working.
Anybody else run into this problem?
Thanks for any and all input!
