Suddenly when I was working on my PC today, it froze, when I tried to reboot it, it just didn't POST, and one of the two lights it has was reddish, the mobo gave me some beeps in the first 3 times I tried to restart it; however, it stopped giving me the beeps. The specs of the computer are the following:
- Ram : 1gb
- Intel Pentium 4
- Seagate Barracuda 64gb
- Western Digital SATA 64gb
- 300 W PSU
(I don't know about the mobo version, and the case says HP compaq)
Now I'll be a little more specific, I've started nuding the whole system, and when I took out the Seagate Barracuda 64gb, it made a POST; nonetheless, since the harddrive I took out had the O.S. I believed I couldn't go any further, I went through the BIOS and tried to save the config, as a conclusion there, I thought the problem was the hard drive.
After that, I tried to turn on the system again (without the hard drive) and it gave me the same problem of the beginning. I took out both hard drives and the problem persisted.
Following that, I took out the battery, the system loaded just fine (without both hard drives), I turned it off and put the battery again, I gave me the same problem.
I'm pretty sure, there's no problem with the monitor, I suspect the PSU even tho the fans and the PSU itself work just fine(the psu has this green light on).
I'm no expert, so I dunno how to proceed. I'll be waiting for some input.
