I am looking at a computer for a friend of mine. The problem is nothing will load up once the power is turned on. After turning on the power, nothing happens. The power stays on, but that's it. It does not appear to go through a POST script, nor does the BIOS appear to load anything.

I had the computer apart and everything seems connected just fine.

Any thoughts or questions?

First try clearing the cmos. If that doesn't work, remove all devices not required to post (IE Expansion cards, hard drives, optical drivers, etc) and anything on the back of the system, save the power and perhaps the video and keyboard. If it posts, start putting in one device at a time and see if it posts.

If it still does nothing, try configuring the system down to just motherboard, cpu/fan, and power(remove the ram as well) and see if you get some beep codes. If you get no beeps, then it's probably the motherboard.
