Hi, my computer has been running perfectly for a year with no problems.

It is a core 2 duo, on an ASUS P5KC AiLifestyle Series iP35 Socket 775. Today when i tried to turn it on, it got stuck on the windows loading screen. When I went to reset it, it wouldnt post atall. The cpu fan would spin for a moment, then stop for 10 seconds and try again. I have tried draining the mb battery, with no luck. I was wondering what aspect of the PC could be broken? CPU MB, or hopefully just the PSU?

Any suggestions?

Generally if your cpu fan spins and it wont POST then there is a good chance its the CPU.
