sorry i must have misread. are you saying theres no harddrive activity whatsoever just spinning fans? does your cd work?lights flash an such? do you know how to enter your bios settings? if so,is your pc seeing your hard drive? does your pc run a post test lots of numbers flashing by an stuff? with the logo of the computer make eg..dell, compaq ?... if you have another graphics card try it
Correct. I press the button and then the fans starts to spin nonstop, nothing else happens. The cd rom thingy can open and close, but when i tried putting the recovery cd in, it wouldn't even spin. It just sat there. When I first turn it on, you can see the little yellow light but then it goes clear and it's back to just the fans spinning. I wish I could learn the bios settings, etc., but I don't know about all of that yet. Sorry
