Hello, after a power failure, I kept getting the "cpu error - check soft menu" message. After four days of the computer working fine anyway, I decided to enter the soft menu and have a look see. Evidently I changed and saved something, stupid granny that I am.
Now, when I turn on my custom built Win XP Home, formerly overclocked cpu with lots of nice features and programs nothing happens. The fan does come on now and I hear some faint clicking like something is thinking. Used to be the clicking would end when Windows began to load. Nothing shows on the 2 monitors I've tried. Tried a boot floppy with no success. The only light that comes on is the power one, the pretty red decorative one inside the case. No floppy light or cd light at all.
Anything I can do myself? I have 2 other Win XP computers with far fewer programs and ram so I guess I could use them to format the hard drive. I do know how to remove and install a hard drive, ram cd drive, etc. Beyond that very few computer soft/hardware skills.
