Greetings, most helpful and attentive BC community...
I am new in the world of IT/PC repair.
I just got a $10 computer from a yard sale to tinker with.
It is a Compaq Presario SR1620NX tower.
It powers on, and has the XP home edition OS. But for some reason, the display is very fuzzy in some areas of the screen and clear in others. There is a constant scratching noise from the HDD, and something like "white noise" that matches the HDD sound on the screen, in the form of little horizontal white lines.
My monitor is fine. That's not the problem.
The problem is in the computer, and I have no clue what it could be.
I have run diagnostics on the HDD and Memory, and both passed.
