I have an HP 8200 SFF that was working fine earlier today. The computer spent most of its time in a sleep state because it was a conference room computer. Then, without any known reason, the fans got really loud. I attempted to shut it down gracefully but got no screen to show up. I powered it down forcefully, ie. hold the power button, but I cannot get the HP to boot now. When I attempted to turn it back on, nothing happened except for the power and CPU fans got really loud. I can hear the hard drive start to spin and lights blink normally but neither the bios or OS boot. Nothing shows up on the screen. I've tried viewing something the monitor using a couple different video cards and switched out hard drives with known working ones but to no avail. Is the motherboard fried?
TL:DR When I attempt to turn on my HP 8200, nothing happens except fans cooling the power and CPU get loud.
Thanks for your help!
