I have a 2 year old S2482 eMachine that suddenly wouldn't turn on at all. After checking all of the connections, I determined that it was probably the power supply. Installed a new PS and now when I push the switch, the fans spin, the LED on the mobo lights, the CD drive door opens and closes correctly, but the HD stops activity after initial spin-up and there is no signal to the monitor and there are no beeps or any other activity. I now think that something happened to the CPU when the PSU died. Is that possible and is there any way that I can check to see if the CPU is blown?
