Hi All,

I am faced with a machine which is *completely* un-responsive after power-up. 
There is no HD activity, no activation of the monitor from standby, and no 
beeping, although the fans run normally. I have removed or disconnected 
mouse, keyboard, DVD and HD (both SATA) and memory resulting in no change of 
response - i.e. there is no complaint of any kind about the lack of essental 
hardware. The machine's owner tells me that yesterday it spontaneously 

Is there any way simple way to distinguish a power supply, processor or 
motherboard fault? Any suggestions would be welcome.
