Computer Not Turning ON
Bad storm rolled through, electricity sparked, computer never turned back on. Checked power supply and tried different one, didn't work. Tried removing some hardware, i.e. hard drives, floppy drives; didn't work. Finally tried checking processor to see if burned up, processor chip was fine, but I have a chip right next to it, that has a heatsink with no fan on top and when I removed the heatsink there was a black ring where the heatsing sat. Does anyone have any idea what chip this is. I don't wan't to have to replace the whole motherboard if I can just replace this chip. It is a chip that looks just like the processor, just a little smaller in area.
