    Unhappy hardware malfunction


    long story short the power went out at my house and now my computer wont do anything my mobo light comes on and my front power button light comes on thats all no sounds no fans no screen. so is it my mobo psu ram or cpu? if its my cpu can i use a Pentium 4 model 630 in place of a Pentium 4 516? here are my mobo specs

    Specifications
    Part Number: 1008552Gateway DX200X Desktop Computer
    Model: DX200X

    The following table provides the specifications for the Gateway® DX200X desktop computer.

    Feature Specification
    # Processor Types Supported:

    * Intel® Celeron® D
    * Intel Pentium® 4

    # Level 1 (L1) Cache: 16 KB (all)
    # Level 2 (L2) Cache:

    * 256 KB (Celeron D 3xx series)
    * 1 MB (Pentium 4 5xx series)
    * 2 MB (Pentium 4 6xx series)

    # Front Side Bus (FSB) Speed:

    * 533 MHz (Celeron D)
    * 800 MHz (Pentium 4)

    # Features (when supported by CPU)

    * XD (eXecute Disable) bit
    * EM64T (64-bit support) support
    * EIST (Intel Speed Step) support

    will a extra 1mb cache substantially improve my speed if it will even work?

    but the only answer i really care about is how to get my computer to work again if its not fubar?

    Most likely powersupply and/or motherboard are defect.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
