I built a new Linux box last year from new parts. Everything was working fine until this week when it started freezing up during normal use. The next day, it wouldn’t boot up properly, and now when I turn it on, it won’t show anything on screen, and I get a continuous tone from the little motherboard speaker. The fans and lights all still work though.
Does anyone know what could be causing this? I think it’s probably a fried motherboard, but I guess there is a chance it could also be a bad PSU, or worse still, a bad PSU that fried the motherboard. Could it be even be something else like the RAM or CPU?
I have asked around, and will ask on some more forums, but I’m still not 100% sure about what part or parts I should replace. What would be the best course of action?
