HELP!! My computers were up and running, 1 online, and while running the wet/dry vac to tidy up the work space a little, I tripped the breaker. This computer came up ok but my hot rod didn't. When I fire it up I here the fans going, the hard drive light comes on for about 10 sec. goes out then blinks once, and there she sits. The monitor never comes out of stand-by. I tried my emergency boot disc to no avail. I'll be trying a new power supply while waiting for responses.

MSI KT3 M/B W/VIA KT 333 C/S

I forgot to mention Athlon XP-1800, also I have one of those USB add on cards that has the four diagnostic lights that burn green when all systems are go, they are all red now. I'm still looking for my instructions on that board to tell what all four lights red mean, but I sure it's not that I won the lotto.
