My PC wouldn't power on yesterday, I cleared it of static and removed the cmos battery for a few moments but still nothing. I thought it's probably the power unit so I removed it and went looking for a replacement in PC world. While chatting to the tech guy he checked my power unit by attaching a paper clip to two leads as a jumper and the fan started up. He said the power unit is fine but in that case my motherboard is probably fried.
The PC is 6 years old so I'll probably need a new one but is the guy correct or is there something else I can try?
