    Today when I was using my computer, the display froze completely -- I couldn't even move the cursor.

    I thought nothing of it and rebooted the system, but after booting, the screen would be completely blank. No memory check, no pre-boot CMOS/BIOS (or whatever it's called) sequence. The NUMLOCK light on the USB keyboard didn't even turn on (are they supposed to?).

    The disc tray still ejects when I hit the button, the fans are still on, but otherwise the machine is completely unresponsive.

    Does anybody know what the problem might be? I'm taking a wild guess that maybe the motherboard might be dead, maybe -- but how do I know? And what would I do about it if it is dead?

    I really need the use of my PC and I'm dead in the water here! (And really lucky that I still have a laptop to troubleshoot the problem.)

    Thanks for your help~

    Hey, somebody? Anybody?

    Suppose my motherboard IS dead, how would I even go about getting it fixed? Please!?
