Dead Solo9100

Ok, first of all, you need to provide more information when asking for help, your question is really ambigious for a direct answer, but I'll run the gauntlet.

1. Just because the computer turns on, does not mean the PSU is fine. Try replacing it.

2. Try switching the RAM out for some that is known to be working.

2a. If the computer has an add-on card for video, try replacing that, this is a long-shot though.

3. Make sure everything is seated in the case properly(RAM,CPU,Chips,Powercables,I/O cords).

3. If you get this far, it sounds like a bad or fried CPU. Replace it for one that is known working.

4. If you get this far, and still nothing, your motherboard is probably dead.

All of this, could be wrong, so if this doesn't help, please post more info, so I can figure it out further.
