my pc started playing up the other day, when booting up once it was on the desktop it would auto reboot, kept on doing this until it just wouldnt get off the very first screen on start up where you can enter BIOS etc F2, F8 but it will not let me access any of these, just gets stuck on the purple Packard Bell screen. The fans etc all work so really not sure what is going on.
Thanks, yeah heard it might need a clean so will do that tonight.
There was a disk in the drive put i took it out and then I dont know if it was a coincidence but thats maybe when it completely stopped working????
Its Windows 7 but an upgrade from Vista, probably about 2 years ago or so
PC is probably about 7-8 yr old
Replaced PSU about a year ago, might get hold of another one as I heard it could be that but then it does get power so not sure.......
Bought myself a air duster and gave it a clean and removed all boards and connectors and then took them back, also removed the battery, switched it back on and still the same. Will try a another PSU unit tonight.
I suppose its just about elimanating what could be the problem.
