I have a compaq desktop ( old) sr1620nx
windows was preinstalled. I have an sp1-sp2 disk
i have changed antivirus recently, and tried to remove both macafee and trendmicro and have installed avira free antivirus
there were some problems with the uninstalls and in the installs..and I had a few errors..but the computer worked for a couple of days after that.
today.. black screen... no start up.. the fan turns on.. it starts to wind up like it is loading, but it never really turns over..
so my checklist:
a) i have juice
the monitor works, i connected it and the cable to a laptop and they work. i also ran a test and it says signal works
c) i have rebooted and tried every F8 and other option over and over.. can get nothing..
d) i have tried rebooting with all peripherals detached
e) i have tried rebooting with sp1 -sp2 disk in cd rom drive
nothing gets me anything...
a) the green power light stays on
the fan keeps running
c) it rumbles for a bit
if i can figure out how to get to a screen / anykind of screen to do a registry or restore option I would be very appreciatived.
