Machine wouldn't turn off last night, after being told to shut down from XP - (been doing that a lot recently). Anyway, was really tired so I switched it off at the mains.
Come the morrow. Press the button to turn on...nothing happens. Case is opened. Power LED's are green. Just won't switch on. What does the does this forum think has gone wrong? I think the PSU is fine, but I might have to replace my motherboard - shorted something, fried anther or just screwed the BIOS in style. Please help.

Many thanks,

Clear the CMOS then try rebooting.

I want to die like my my sleep...not screaming in terror like his passengers.
