I need a bit of help here lads.
A week ago my PC halted. Somehow I managed to start it again, losing the /home partition though. The Windows partition worked all right except the networking part. A few days ago I was playing UT. I exited the room for a minute to get myself some tea; when I returned the screen was in standby mode, the fans were whirring. I reset it again. It hanged on the mainboard vendor logo screen.
A few more resets, turning it on and off again. Nothing. When I pressed the power button, the red LED blinked once, the fans started whirring, then nothing.
I tried replacing the PSU. Detaching the video card, memory modules one by one, re-attaching them again. Nothing. No PC speaker signals. It just whirrs.
What shall I do next? It's an old machine, nearly ten years old. If it's the CPU or the mainboard, repairing it is out of question. Is there anything I've missed to check?
