I have a Advent computer that is around 3 years old running on XP. Today it completely died.
When I switch the machine on the green power light comes on, as does the orange HD light comes on, and so does the green light on the DVD-RW drive. The fans start up but there is no boot up. The screen remains completely blank and the keyboard has no power neither does the mouse - which is infrared so it lights up as power comes to it.
Yesterday, while i was using it it kept freezing for no apparent reason and as far as I am aware there is not a virius on the computer.
Edit: _ I have further checked the computer the light on the motherboard comes on but it's as if there isn't enough power to boot up the rest of the computer. I have tried unpluging our new DVD-RW drive but it made no difference.
