I recently created a computer from spare parts that I found in my garage, cleaned them out, and through out the damged ones that would not work.
So, once I was complete, I started the computer, I heard about 5 beeps, and then nothing, the fan was on, I could feel virbration from the Hard Drive, and all the lights were on. But, the keyboard was non-responsive, it had the numlock light on, but when I pressed Caps Lock, nothing happened. And the mouse was not even on. When I pressed the monitor menu button, the monitor displayed this message: In Power Save Mode. Press and key on keyboard or move mouse.
I moved a few cables around, and got the 5 beeps to stop, but still the monitor, keyboard, and mouse are not working.
