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
