Ok, here we go again. My computer had been perfect until now. Here's what happened: Yesterday I used it for about half an hour, just listening to music and working on some random things. I noticed a severe storm was about to roll in so I turned the computer off (it shut down normally, nothing strange happened) and then unplugged it. Two hours later, I came back and turned it on. However, nothing happened. The computer powered up but refused to boot. The monitor stayed on stand-by. I went into "wtf" mode and tried my best for the next 5 hours to revive the computer. No luck. The first thing I tried was to reset the CMOS, but no such luck. I tried it several more times without success. My video card powers up because the GPU fan works when I power up the computer. I even tried putting in my old 9550 AGP card to test my GeForce 6600GT but still no boot. I fiddled with the sound card, RAM, etc. Nothing. The busy light and the green power light stay on when I turn the computer on. Also, the green LED light on the motherboard is on. One thing I did however notice was that even in this boot "limbo", the DVD-ROM functions. The CD-RW on the other hand doesn't. It's as if there's no power in it. So what I did was unplug the power and IDE cables from the CD-RW and DVD drives and when I tried to boot the computer, the red light disappeared. Still no boot though. The main question is: what happened to the computer that was working perfectly when it was completely unplugged?
