Custom built PC been working great for 3 years, then it stopped booting up. Well, that's not entirely true, but I'll explain further.
Basically you push the power button, fans come on whirling but the HD light never lights up, and nothing comes on the screen. I get no beeps from bios, and no indication that there is something wrong. Of course it used to be if I left it off for about 30 min after trying to boot it up, sometimes it would actually turn on and work fine.
However it's been 2 weeks since that last worked (should've just left it on grrr), and now it's pretty dead. I did the usual, pulled out the RAM, gfx card, bios battery - turned the PC on and no bios or beeps, just fans whirling.
Thought I must have either a dead motherboard or a dead CPU since it's not even getting to the bios. Bought a new bios battery, no dice. Bought a new motherboard and tried with all my old parts + new mobo... no dice. Went ahead and bought a new CPU, put it in last night, no dice.
Unless they shipped me a bad CPU, what could the problem be? Power supply?
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
