    At start-up I get fans (case, video card, cpu), all power supply stuff, but monitor screen does not light up, PC does not attempt to load. I get green flashing LEDs on the monitor, PC (by the start switch) and on the cd/rw. Occasionaly the red activity LED will blink for just a second. The USB hub gets a power light but does not "flash" the ports. There are no sounds at all, beeps, clicks, etc. Computer was working fine, I returned fron dinner to blank screen. I thought it had gone into hibernation or something so I moved the mouse and tapped the keyboard but to no avail. Turned it off, restarted several times with above results and now I'm back to the table of knowledge hoping you folks can save me again.

    Reason for problem... solved... with a previous posting on the forum by Winbob. Hard drive shot. Winbob said disconnect EIDE cable and try to boot from floppy. I did and PC did so there you are. Great forum!
