Boot Failure

My friend is running Win XP Pro. Her PC failed to startup. There's nothing on the screen not even the 'checking RAM and CD-ROM'. What could be the cause of this problem ?

I think so but is there anything I can do ? Which hardware has the highest percentage at fault ?

Well percentage won't help much. You should start by disconnecting everything that's not entierly vital. This means leave only mobo, memory, cpu, graphics and internal speaker plugged in. If there's still nothing remove the graphics. If still nothing (no beeps) then it's most likely your mobo.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
