Had the back off the hard drive yesterday to clean it.
First, I hope it was not the Hard Drive
, but just the Computer Case
(box) that you mean !!
A monitor will last quite a long time, this has done 2 XP setups so far, but at some times they do fail.
The easy check is to borrow another one, and run your computer off that to see the result - You will (should) not harm the other one -
First open Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager, and see if there are any Red or Yellow ( !
) marks beside any items.
If there is, plese post back with any and all details -
Thank You -
