Hi my sister bought a brand new pc for her sons christmas and she cant seem to get it up and running. The pc is a Q-Tech amd atholon 2200 win /xp home bought from index. She has connected everything up monitor, mouse , keyboard, etc. After she switches the pc on , she gets a message saying no signal, check cable, this last about 4 seconds then jumps to the black screen with all the hardware listed, then the pc ask boot from cd she inserts the cd it all runs well then she gets an error message saying " could not find harddrive drivers please press f3 to quit setup".
Thats as much as i know i'm using her words, she has tried a few times getting the same message, i tried the website for q-tech but got no help there. Thanx in advance.
When you get a message saying "NO Signal" on the monitor it usually means that you haven't pressed the start button on the tower unit yet. Switch on mains socket, switch on monitor then switch on tower unit. It could be something as simple as that.
graham√ seems to have the right messages shes getting so i take it you agree with the rest of the guys and take it back,
Also tried switching on monitor then tower still same message. Not really sure what cd she should have to boot pc with, i'll check tonight when she invites me for sunday dinner though she doesn't know that yet. Lol.
went to my sisters earlier on, she couldn't really show my pc as its a xmas present for her son who was in at the time. Anyway she showed me all the cds she got with the pc and they were system restore, nero, power dvd, and one that i'm not sure about epox motherboard cd, other than that she had two works 7 cds.
