i have just purchased on new computer that has no operating system on it.
the specs are:
Chip Type: AMD Athlon XP
Processor Speed: 3.2 GHz
Memory (RAM): 1 GB
Hard Drive Capacity: 120 GB
I was trying to turn it on to start loading on xp. When I press the power button the light comes on and the fans begin to whir and the light comes on on the cd drive. this all happens for about half a second and then it stops. nothing comes up on the monitor at all.
I checked all the connections (inside and out) and it all seems fine.
Of course, there was a bit a problem - on its arrival the fan had come loose from the mother board. I have clipped it back on but am worried that this has smacked into something and damaged the computer.
Wanted to try all options before screaming at the place I purchased the system.
thanks for your help
