Has my pc committed sucide?

Has my pc committed sucide? I turned it off when the monitor got frozen and no response from mouse or keyboard. When I turned it on again, the red Hard Drive light turned on for about 10 seconds, then nothing happened: no display on monitor. When I opened the box, everything seemed ok: all fans were working. I use Winxp.

I see the problem he is a "Wyse man". Those monitors are *so* old - surprised it worked this long!

I'd replace the BIOS battery round silver thingy on the motherboard. Fixed my buddies PC like thatit was dead as a door nail. new batterypresto....

Nothing on the monitor at any stage. No BIOS text. For a healthy start in the past, it usually starts with 'dood' sound in the beginning. It's not there anymore. Possibly the mother board or cpu has died?

RE # 7, I thought the battery is only for keeping the computer time. The pc should work normally with a dead battery.

Did it hang itself in the wardrobe? Can't really blame it,old stuff like
that should be allowed to pass
peacefully into Cyberspace.I had a cat that did that.
