Smile a problem and a question

First the question. I have a TCD540040 two years old and today the green light on the front was not on. On the TV was the powering up screen and it was frozen there. So I unplugged it and waited and plugged it back in. Now the fan will spin normally but nothing else. The hard drive will not spin, and no lights on the front. I did diag on the hard drive and it is fine. Is it a power supply problem since the motherboard is getting power (the fan spins) or a motherboard, processor problem?

Secondly, can I take a hard drive out of a TCD540040 and put it directly into a TCD540080 without modifying it any?

Thanks for any input

Can't tell you what's wrong but I CAN tell you that you can't put the drive into another unit without modification to the drive. Search for error 51 if you want to look into this.
