Today I Found an old Gateway desktop computer, and apparently something is wrong. due to the fact that i am currently looking for a job, i have a little free time during the day. I figured that i would use this old computer as a project... i want to get it in working order. a couple of plugs were unplugged and i plugged them in where i knew they went, but when i go to turn on the computer nothing happens. on the screen it says no signal, until i messed around with the wires and power button then it said power saver mode. the people who were throwing it out said that it had only been outside for a day and that it didnt rain or anything. so im hoping someone can help me. i posted a link to my imageshack album with some pictures of the inside and things that can possibly be missing. if you want to help and need some more info or pics, just post a reply below. PLEASE HELP ME! also i have no experience fixing computers, but this project has gotten me interested. Oh and it says Windows XP on it so thats why i posted it under this category. Thanks In Advance To Anyone Who Can Help Me. :)

Seems to me it would be simpler and less laborious...and more practical...to ask someone locally who is knowledgeable about computers.

It's not calculus, at the user stage :)...should not be hard to locate local contacts unless you live on a mountain with no neighbors, friends, etc. :).

Just my thoughts.
