I have a computer here that just will not start.
When I received the machine it would start once in about ten tries to start it up. Then over time it just got worse until it just will not start at all.
I have checked the power supply and it checks out ok with my power tester. The fan on the power supply starts up and goes. The fan on the cpu is working. I have changed the parallel cable with no change in the starting. I have even changed the hard drive with one that I know works but no change in the status of starting.
I have not changed the ram but could that do it? The motherboard looks good. There is no sign of any capacitors that have popped that I can see.
The drive light on the computer does not even blink once or even attempt to come on.
Any suggestions with what I should look for or do next? Thank you for your help
