    If your PC wont POST, that is it wont show the white writing on a black screen, then heres some things to try

    Remove everything from the board, except for one stick of ram and the video card, this includes all IDE devices and cables, if it doesnt boot then swap out the Power Supply Unit, if it still wont boot then either the board is bad or the CPU is bad,

    Boards do fail, for no reason other than old age or because they are badly built, if you dont have access to spare parts then pop it into a PC shop for better diagnosis.
