When I hit the power, the CPU fan starts up but nothing else happens. It was up and running fine & just died. Any ideas?

My Tyan Trinity 400 did the same thing. After muddling around with it for a while swapping out CPU and other components, I sent it to TYAN computers and they sent me a new one with a message about BIOS chip failure in referance to the one I sent in.

Another symptom - If I remove the ribbon cable from the hard drive, it starts to spin up when powered on.
