I want to get this old machine up and running.

I found a matching power chord, plugged it in and made sure it would run. It wasn't plugged into my display. It turns on, the fan lights up blue and the PC is running. It starts beeping. I used the switch on the back to turn it off because the power button wouldn't turn it off.

I plugged it into my display and it won't turn on. Unplugged the display. WONT turn on. Tried different outlets, etc.. nothing. I can't get it to come back on. In the inside there is a variety of chords not plugged in and it seems some may be plugged in incorrectly.

I need some help getting this running. I will provide pictures now and if I need

Hello,

 

:welcome: to Bleeping Computer!

 

Is it beeping when you start the computer?

Actually I have it running and hooked up to my display. I reinstalled the RAM and hooked up a loose chord.

Now I think I need a copy of windows and it will work

Well you could use linux to do that, great way to see if everything is working.

That way you can use it to see what hardware is actually on the machine before buying a copy of windows.

If the hardware is too old there is a chance windows 10 may not work on it.


You know you want me baby!
