Help please! Our daughter switched our computer off at the mains the other day without shuting the machine down first. Now the PC won't start, all I get is the noise of the fan, a constant red light but nothing else. Have tried to restart by holding the power button in, but without fail. No beeps no nothing. Any help in getting this fixed is much appreciated. Thanks!
turn your compter on then go into setup (Hit F2) I think that should get you to the boot order. Change the first boot to CD (It is probably set to your HD.) then go back put your xp cd in turn your computer off, and then back on. it should boot into windows using the cd.
Unfortunately I cannot open the CD drive, or get anything on the screen, my monitor shows that there is no signal, so quite clearly the PC is not doing anything at all. Really don't know how to get this resolved.
