I online game, and have 2 PCs active for this; I came home after a weekend away to find that the old, old 2nd PC suddenly won't power-on - specifically, pressing the Power button makes the lights give a brief pulse for like 0.1 of a sec then die again right away, nothing else does anything. I didn't do anything to the PC in between it working fine on Friday and it being dead on Sunday.
Am I right in suspecting that given the ancient nature of the system, it's not worth trying to save and I should just steal the hard drive and run? It's a Celeron 500 ... built by a friend a few years ago, nothing changed since then bar sticking a newer gfx card in maybe 18 months ago and RAM from 256->512 also.
I'm not very technical, the furthest I went so far was to open the case and make sure the cards and memory sticks and PSU still all seemed to be seated firmly. Anything else trivial I can do? I'm not keen to throw it away, but I'm aware that its old enough that its components are pretty much junk now.
Thanks for your help.
