    I could do that - I've built stuff before, but I think I will take the opportunity to reduce my hardware inventory and investigate new storage...

    I fear you are right. I think I'm resigned to the fact.

    Nah, it's definitely dead. I put in a new CMOS battery, and also to be sure reconnected the monitor, but still nothing but spinning fans.

    I am sure that's not the issue, as it is not making any beeps, which I would expect with no memory/no keyboard etc. (only while testing).

    No. I power on and there is whirring as things spin up, but that is all. Nothing ever appears on the monitor.

    I would be HIGHLY surprised if it was a USB connection problem as the box just sits in a corner and hasn't been moved in months, so there would be...

    I very nervously connected the PSU from the dead PC to the working PC. I powered on and it booted up no trouble, so I am satisfied that my problem is...

    OK, I managed to get the 2 PCs in to a position where I could connect both the 4-pin and 24-pin connectors. I removed the memory and powered up. The...

    The PSU definitely powers up. The PSU fan spins, the CPU and case fans spin and the HDD feels like it is working.

    OK, this may be a strange question, but how much of the power supply do I have to connect to be able to prove what we need to know? The 4-pin ATX...

    OK, I've removed the memory and powered on and it is exactly the same - no beeps, nothing.

    I don't have a spare power supply since the great PC meltdown of a few months ago. What I need to is to open it up and check everything out.

    My WHS PC appears to have died. When I power on, the disks spin up, but no POST, no beeps, nothing on the screen, nada. Suggestions?
