    so i woke up this morning to get on some jb and my computer is broken and have no idea what the problem is. After reading alot of stuff nothing leans towards the problem im having (computer wont boot up but still has power). Ive troubleshooted and tried everything with no results so im going to have to take it to someone. I dont know when i will be back it could be anywhere from a week or 2 until christmas and i can get a new one.

    What does your display say when it won't boot up? Could be mobo/harddrive related.

    TBH it sounds like a motherboard thing to me. The fact hat you say it's a black screen (assuming absolutely blank) would mean nothing is being executed seemingly at all. This would be the case if nothing blinks on screen at all. The keyboard and such probably still receives power through USB but doesn't really get effected by whether or not your systems boots.

    If you want to play it safe before replacing the motherboard I'd double check every connection, especially make sure nothing's plugged in to wrong places, and that RAM is seated properly and not dead. Also it's stupid but double check your display is functioning and the cable for that is all set. Also it's possibly related to CPU but I'm not sure on that. CPU is just as irritating to replace as motherboard in my opinion and costs more.

    I run my rig off a cheap intel board and it honestly works great. Got it for probably $100 so frankly I'd try that before a processor.

    it probably is ESD damage, that means you MUST give it back to the retailer and say it is ESD damage.

    Worst case scenario, you can always try to grab some nice deals on Cyber Monday or Christmas by saving up money. I got my PC for $300 less thanks to Cyber Monday deals.
