    That is kind of a general question as there could be many different possibilities. If you think you have one of these problems post some exact questions, and we'll get it figured out. It's a lot easier to diagnose a problem with a LOT of information than not enough.

    a no post sitution where you get no bleeps, no video etc could be caused by many things.
    For example
    • failed CPU
    • failed motherboard
    • failed video card
    • failed RAM
    • failed other piece of hardware (IDE drives, PCI cards etc.)
    so to narrow this list down you really need to be able to test you components in another (working) machine.

    The motherboard may be grounding out on the case.

    Test the motherboard outside of the case on a piece of cardboard.
