Can somebody technically minded give me some advice please.
My PC went to silicon heaven sometime on friday and no amount of poking around by myself has been able to ressurect it. When i turned it on i got zip, zilch, nothing but blackness. The lights come on, the fans whirl around and thats about it. I dont even get to see the bios screen.
Now i have a Chaintech 9cjs mobo and it handily gives me an error code of FF. Now according to the manual this is either (sigh) a bios problem or more likely because i havent touched the bios is that its a cpu failure.
If it is indeed the cpu that has fried is it simply a case of slotting in a new pentium 4 and away i go or will it take some form of advanced jiggery pokery to return it to life?
Also how do i know it isnt the mobo that has fried?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
