I have an old HP Vectra that I got from my brother. I plugged it in, and the cd rom started acting weird, and the the hdd lights and everything went on. I unplugged it. Plugged it back in, now it wont start. I unplugged everything from the mobo except the powersupply and a stick of RAM and still no results, help is appreciated.

try resetting the bios with a jumper; if this does not work, check if the cpu is inserted completely in the socket, and check and reseat all the plugs.
