    So I've looked around for possible solutions to my problem.

    My problem is I turn on my PC and I see a green led for my Motherboard power. The fans spin for just a second then stop, and no boot.

    I've disconnected every component except the heatsink, cpu and fan.

    I've tried resetting the CMOS by changing the jumper settings. No good.

    I've tried switching the memory around. Nothing.

    I've now taken the motherboard battery out and will re-insert it after this post is finished.

    If that doesn't work I fear I'm running out of options.

    I tried the PSU in another PC and it was fine. So I know it's not the PSU. I tried the OTHER PCs ORIGINAL PSU and that did gave the same problem.

    I've read up on a couple of articles about shorting out the motherboard or power supply or something as a solution.

    Is this true? It sounds more destructive than creative.

    If anyone has any advice or suggestions I would really appreciate it.

    This PC is extremely new. Literally half a year old. It has a BFG 850w PSU, an ASUS M8 Motherboard w/ an Athlon Dual Core Phenom 3.2GHz

    It has built in SLI with two Nvidia GTX 260s

    Two 1gb HDDs

    it has about 5 fans including two graphics card fans.

    it has 4gb of DDR2 ram.

    PLEASE HELP :(

    Yes. It worked FINE up until about two weeks ago when it was last used.
