My wife turned her PC on this morning. It started as normal, the Asus boot screen being displayed and the motherboard gave its customary single beep. But it stops there. No further activity is detected. I opened the case and checked all connections. Everything appears OK. I rebooted. I can hear initial HDD activity as they power up (not booting, just powering up). If the CPU has failed, can I expect the motherboard to report this via the POST beep codes? RAM usually initiates a series of beeps if it's faulty. Don't see that. Any ideas? Thanks.
