My gaming computer seems to have kicked the bucket for the time being. I turned on my computer earlier yesterday and noticed that it wasn't passing the POST, no video or even beeps from the case. I did some fiddling with the vga-to-dvi adapter, thinking it a loose cable, and tried it again. Computer booted up, booted up SWAT, went ingame and then the video cut, left with a blank screen.
And that's it. Now whenever I boot the PC, the fans just whir, no POST beeps or anything.
I'm considering it may be that the CPU burned out, as I noticed that the CPU heatsink fan wasn't spinning when I opened it up and switched it on the first time... Though I checked to make sure there wasn't anything obstructing it, and now it seems to spin up every time.
I can't rule out the possibility that it's a bad graphics card, but the lack of beeps from the case might mean either the CPU or the motherboard is broken.
Either way, I'm gonna rip out most of everything from the case, starting with the graphics card to see if I can get any response from it!
