Another "computer no beeps no video no post" Problem

Seanix Intel P3-800, 2 Video - AGP and S3,
This my old backup system. Worked yesterday, but not today.
Power supply fan works and voltages OK.
Case fan and CPU fan not working (CPU very hot after a few minutes).
*Case fan and CPU fan are powered off the motherboard.
CD and DVD lights come on for a few seconds.
HD light comes on for about one minute, then goes off (no flickering afterwards).
Any idea folks? Where do I go from here?

Unplug it from the wall then reinstall all the connections.

unplug them then plug them back in again, something may have come loose. Then plug it back into the wall and try again. Listen closely for hardware failure beeps when you start it up again.

Unplugged, replugged. No beeps

Thanks for the idea Dango517. Have tried that already including resetting boards and plugs, etc. No beeps. Sad

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
