I'm trying to help a friend of mine out who lives on disability.
A couple wks ago the power flashed several times, my friend was on her pc during this & stated she couldn't shut it down in between cause it was flashing so quickly. Anyways, since then her pc won't come up. I had thought maybe a video issue since it sounded like it was loading & just not displaying....I plug'd it into another monitor & it did the same thing. Then, I brought it home to mess with it....I had it on Friday to where it finally showed me that the system files were corrupted. I got the info from Microsoft on how to repair that.....yet, the pc wouldn't boot from cd no matter what. It showed it...even asked if I wanted to boot from cd but then would just reboot. This morning....it won't do anything. When you turn it on....the power just like cycles. Fan runs just a few seconds then it restarts....
I've unplug'd all the components (just power plugs), still does same thing. I haven't removed the modem card..... I'm at a loss lol
Thanks to anyone with any ideas what to try.
