More diagnostics like several of the suggestions above would be helpful in pinpointing what the *exact* nature of the problem is....

It could be something as simple as the PSU going South....

Right then update time lol
Basically i placed the old working ram in, no joy. 1 stick or 2 sticks nothing happens. Still black screen. However now im getting a couple short beeps just after i turn on the PC. a google search revealed that these beeps are a parity error. I just spoke to my friend who suggested that as i cannot get into bios the board is pretty much useless now. To quote him
'It wants to work, it just dont know where to start looking' So im leaving the CMOS battery out for the day, jumpering it, and if that dont work then unfortunatly its warrenty time. Only had it 5 months lol, see if PC world will exchange without the reciept. They should know i bought it there, they asked me enough bloomin questions when i bought it lol
