I've been trying to troubleshoot my (what I believe to be a) dead machine. I get a black screen on boot however when I put in a Windows boot cd, I can hear the drive spinning.
Also, I can't hold the power button to turn it off. The only way to turn it off is the switch on the power supply. Is it the power supply, cpu or motherboard that has gone out? I really want to get this machine fixed, so any and all help is appreciated. If I need to supply more information, I happily will.
