    Good Morning All,

    Well im having a little bit of trouble with my mums computer, its an off the shelf acer aspire thats nearly 3 years old, and up until about a week ago everything was fine, then one day she went to use it and puff, nothing, it dosen't post, make any beeping noises at all, have tried swapping the memory around, removed the gpu all to no avail, all the fans spin and everything sounds healthy but its got me a bit confused, so any and all help would be much appricated!!

    i've read that it _should_ beep if you only got the cpu set (no graphics card or ram) 'cause it'll notify you that its missing ram, if it doesn't do that it might be fried.

    That is my motherboard testing procedure too. Check that is has a speaker to beep, remove something important like the RAM, no beeps = dead motherboard
