I have an old pc (about 5 years, I would guess running Win ME). It seems about ready for an overdue retirement but I just want to make sure I'm not missing something here.
It was refusing to boot with some sort of half attempt at repeated beeps from the motherboard. A quick re-seating of the Ram and the monitor connection seemed to get it to boot up but it locked sometime after. Now the cpu fan boots up and a few lights come on but there is no output and no beep(s).
There is no seperate graphics card nor any AGP slot for one. I could, I suppose try a PCI one but the lack of any beep leads me to think the motherboard is on its way out.
It is a uk TIME pc which never were up to much in my opinion but if anybody has any thoughts as to whether it is worth trying to nurse it back to health or just shoot it I would appreciate it...
