My desktop cannot boot and the power button displays only a solid yellow light. I tried unplugging everything except the power cable, then booting, but without any change. Then I disconnected all memory in the system at the suggestion of another computer help site before booting and still the same situation. I did not hear any beep codes nor did I see any diagnostic LEDs light up. I'm tempted to try and strip the motherboard clean of everything; wireless cards, video cards, etc. and try and see if I can get some beep codes then, but I'm not very confident in my ability to do this without messing something up.
What could the issue be? Has anyone had this happen before? What would be the best way to diagnose this problem?
Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
