  1. I have a custom built comp. that is about 4-5 yrs old . It has worked fine all these yrs. with no problems.Then it locked up playing a game about as old as it.I couldn't crtl alt dlt out of it i had to press and hold the on button . then i turned it back on it said failure on my disk drive and i couldn't get out ,so i shut the power supply off.Now when i turn it on the lights all come on the fans as well , i can hear the hdd turn on, but thats it no pc beep and no bios. I changed the video card thinking that may be it but it wasn't .Any ideas on the problem?It is all clean as well,It may have got to hot but i would have no idea how to find out if it's the MoBo or what . Not sure if this matters or not but the green and orange light on the MoBo come on when i turn it on ,i'm not sure if they were always on before i never really looked i guess.Thank you for any help

    "How do I test the power supply?"...

    By replacing it ;)
