just had my pc crash,with blue screen. In a hurry to switch it off,the only thing I noticed was the blue screen which I think mentioned the word Hardware and showing quite a few zeros.
Anyway,switched back on and had nowt on screen so I took H/D out and connected it to another machine via usb. It wasn;t recognized.
Next,I put a new H/D in crashed pc,with xp disc at ready but dvd drive wouldn;t work. Tried several other drives but to no avail.
I've tried it with gfx card out and connected to onboard,also taken memory out and reseated but no joy.
Fans work,so I suppose its either cpu ,mobo or ram at fault.
Sorry to ramble on but I just thought that someone on here might be able to pinpoint the problem.
Oh,I get no beeps at all either.
Disconnect completely from electric supply (take plug out of wall socket) hold in the power button on pc for 30 seconds to discharge residual current and empty volatile memory. Then plug back in and start pc up. Don't have the HDD connected, this is to see if it will boot into BIOS.
