How old is your motherboard. You're motherboard may be dead if you don't get
any post codes, but it really sounds like a hardware failure somewhere
between the power supply and the motherboard. I had this problem with a box
before and it turned out that the motherboard was dead.

Have had my knoppmyth-box running non-stop for 5 days now, working  
flawlessly, recording every show I want. Today when I turned on the  
TV I couldn't move around the menu, also tried with a keyboard and it  
was totally locked. So I just force-rebooted.

Booted up fine and I went to watch TV, but when I switched channels  
it locked down again, so I rebooted again. Now it doesn't boot at  
all, it just sits there and not even making a boot-beep when I turn  
on the power. No display on the VGA or the S-video out.

If there was a serious problems it would beep on me, right? It used  
to do that anyway. Any way to reset this? I hope I haven't lost all  
my programs saved on the drive...
