I tried asking this on a non-mac related board, but no one there could answer my question, so I thought I'd ggive you guys a try. Basically, it all started a few weeks ago when my computer would just randomly freeze; this became more and more frequent until eventually it wouldn't boot up at all--I'd press the power button and the fans would kick in, but nothing would appear on the monitor, and the HD couldn't be heard reading. SO, after testing the CPU and RAM, I concluded that it was the motherboard, and thus went out and bought a shiny new one. After I installed the new mobo, i plugged the ps in and flicked the switch on the back of it, adn the fans and mobo lights kicked in automatically (before i had to press the power button on the front of the tower), and low and behold, there was STILL nothing appearing on the monitor and no HD sounds. I then tried a new power supply, video card, monitor, and the CPU and RAM again, with no results... This is becomming extremely frustrating, and I was hoping that some of you would have an idea as to what the problem may be. Is it possible for it to be the ATX case? the specs are: AMD Athlon XP 1700 ASUS A7X8X-X(new mobo), ECS P.O.S. (old mobo) 256 MB generic RAM Raedon 9600 pro Fairly old generic power supply and case I appreciate any input.
