I recently discovered that my PC, which runs Windows XP, is no longer booting properly.
When I switch it on the fans of the power supply, motherboard and rear of the case all run but no vision is sent to the monitor and no lights are present on the motherboard or at the rear ethernet port. The usual single beep from the motherboard is no longer present and the internal hard drives don't sound like they're doing anything. The power and reset buttons on the front of the case are now no longer able to turn the PC off.
I've checked the internal connections for any loose ones but haven't had any success. I also tried removing the memory chips from the motherboard one at a time and then both at once as a way to check if the motherboard or memory is at fault. The PC had the same response with each of the memory chips running on their own and there was no error beep made by the motherboard when the computer was booted without any memory attached.
From what I can tell I might be in need of a new motherboard. But any advice would be appreciated!
