Computer unable to start
Posted on 2002-07-21
I am unable to start one of my computers.
It's quite old ... pentium mmx.
When i turn on the power, it doesnt even go to the floppy/CD drive. The power lights turn on ... harddisk spins for about a second and then nothing happens.
I think this computer has had continued problems over the years but no one has attented to them (This isnt my own computer ... a family member's). It used to run scan disk everytime it started. Then the bad sectors got worse. Then it required a restart to start it. Then it needed a boot disk to start it. And finally it didnt start at all :(.
All suggestions welcome ... plz keep question open :)
Thanks in advance
