  1. My PC quit in the middle of doing stuff, it didn't shutdown it just snapped off.There are lights on the video card that are on as well as a light from a card reader addon in a 5" slot.So there is some power in there,pushing the power button brings no response,cycling the switch on the psu does nothing as well.Aside from those lights that are on I've got a big ol lump.Anyone with a similar experience tell me if this is a mobo or a hdd failure?

    Power supply should be swapped out before a motherboard is suspected...
