Please stick to one posting, you are confusing those who are trying to help you. Tick one as resolved and continue with the other.

mondeo, Please go to your other (same questions) lower down this page and click the resolved button at the bottom of the page, where we type in a reply ,We find it difficult t keep going from one to another.Just keep replying to only one of them (this one)

mondeo, I see that you have now ticked all you questions as resolved. Would you now start another one on the subject but with a different heading,such as.. "Computer will not boot into windows" then go on to describe the problem and only keep replying to that one,

open, if you still need help.

Work on this one, as Pamy suggests.

To catch up, you have tried

No cd in drive

Disconnected power to hard drive.

and Pamy's turn on the mains:)

Is that right?

Take out any thing connected to the rear of the computer. i.e. keyboard, mouse, and usb devices plugged in or anything else plugged in.

Try starting the computer.
