Computer won't boot..

  1. Was working fine before... turned it on today and not.

    The splash screen comes up, nothing else. No error message, won't respond to keyboard, won't boot from CD. Have changed hard drive.

    Any ideas?

    Does it make any beeps? If so, how many?
  3. one, when it first tries to start... don't they always make that beep?
  4. Wow, you are the PC expert. PSU? You got 4 of the same trial and error swap is what I would do.

    You have puter problems , that's almost funny.

    Can u get into the bios to make sure it wants to read the proper HD.

    Does it need a new MB battery.

    What about CPU fan and thermal paste , if they get hot they won't boot.

  7. I've never seen this problem before.. and I don't have a spare PSU... the computer is my cousin's.

    Has he/she a list of symptoms it's been displaying?
  9. That's what you get for jacking off on your computer. Seriously, it could be memory problems.

    Unplug it from the wall and take cover off. Make sure the Memory is seated properly. Maybe that will work.
  10. Can't get to the BIOS

    CPU fan is OK... thermal paste not an issue...
