    Computer won't boot. I switch it on, everything internally comes on (case fans, gfx card fans, cd drive, hard disk) but the mouse and keyboard are showing no lights. The monitor remains on standby. There is no bleep on startup. I removed the memory, still no bleep. I've cleared the CMOS (or at least i've used the jumper the manual stated to use to achieve this). The computer is almost 3 years old and gets a lot of use, typically 6 hours a day.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Try entering the Bios Setup if you are able to get in, turn on POST/ or turn off fast boot. If you are not able to enter Bios setup its a hardware problem like motherboard or other stuff.

    It is either the motherboard or the CPU. If everything powers up but you get no POST, my guess is CPU.
