so i got this computer from a friend of mine, so far its just looks.
it runs 3 fans, one in the front, back, and side(with open slits for vent) has a 120 gig acer hard drive with an acer mother board. has a nvidia geforce 5200 video card from what i was told it was 3ghz processor but im treating it like a 2.6ghz for safety measures(physically/technically treat it lke 3 cuz thats what the chip says but say it was 2.6) and a 512 ddr ram card that for some reason during cash load(i think its called) it says it only has 256 ram. the power supply is 400 watts.

the comp gets to the loading screen and just loads forever so i cant get any internal information.

ask what questions you need from me so you guys can help me fix the problem. thx much new to this btw
