Hi there guys, please help if you can!
I posted a problem a while back but after receiving a reply something happened
Check out my original post here:Previous problem
Whilst trying to start a repair install from XP cd, without graphics card installed (jus in case), it rebooted, surprise surprise, and started rebooting over and over. I didn't know what to do so i turned it off to think. Now it won't switch back on!
The HDD is active for at least afew seconds, as the LED on the case is blinking/steady, then it stops but on the monitor I see nothing. No BIOS, POST or even "no signal" message on the monitor.
So i tried both my HDD's in the PC I'm using at the moment, in SLAVE mode, and they are okay. This PC I'm using however is OLD. I can't fit my DDR memory, graphics card or boot into XP from the C: drive as it doesn't have enough RAM or Processor power.
So I think I've narrowed it down to either a broken Processor or motherboard. But I'm not an electronics whizz, it's just an educated guess. I'm probably wrong. I hope I am.
Is there anyway of me checking out this problem without buying it all from scratch?
Thanks in advance
