Hello, I put my computer into sleep mode last night. When I woke up, it was all over...
My computer does not beep, but all the fans are spinning, the motherboard light lights up.
Sometimes, when i start the computer up, the fans spins, stops, then spins gain. I never get the POST beep though.

Thanks a lot for any future help!

Are you sure it's not stuck in limbo between sleep and fully awake? Try pulling the plug out from the wall and plugging it back in then turning it back on. Some hardware has driver bugs that prevent Windows from sleeping or waking properly.

Yes, I have tried unplugging the plug, disconnecting the GPU, cleaning the computer, moving memory around to different sockets.

Can you post the specs of the machine? And also - how old is it? There are a few problems related to age that could be causing something like this, which ought to be ruled out first.

For future references, it was the MOBO's problem.
