This is probably a very common problem but would appreciate some advice before taking my PC int to be mended.
At first, my PC running Windows XP would not power up at all, then it would burst into life and load Windows and operate ok for a short period of time, before dying again. I am now left with power on but no boot up, not even any of the diagnostics running on the display. The HDD light is permanently on and hitting the reset button or powering down and on again does not have an effect.
Please can anyone point me in the right direction to determine the likely cause and if there is anything that I can do before enlisting some help through the proper repair channels.
