So I was trying to burn a DVD using Nero 7 Ultra on my new computer when there was an error about the DVD-RW drive driver. Then the computer completely froze up. The keyboard and mouse didn't respond and even the reset button on the tower was non-functional. So I held down the power button until it shut off. I waited 30 seconds and then powered back on. The CPU and case fans spun up and the DVD and CD drive lights began blinking but there was no video, no POST and no "beeps" from the computer. The hard drive would power up but it wasn't spinning up to full speed, just kind of idling.
So, I first disconnected the DVD and CD drives and that seemed a logical first step. No dice, no change. This was followed by the video card, sound card, RAM, and disk drive. Then I replaced the power supply. Still nothing.
The motherboard and CPU are brand spanking new, I got them a week ago! The DVD and CD burners are less than a year old and have worked flawlessly up til now. The video card is a Nvidia GeForce MX 400 which is about three years old. The hard drive is a 250GB that I got from a coworker.
How can I fix this?Did the motherboard and/or CPU fry? HELP!
