My computer is a bit of a Frankenstein - I bought it in 2002 but have replaced several parts of it over the years. (Motherboard was replaced under original warranty, new hard drive about 2-3 years ago, new RAM a couple years ago, new DVD drive last year, etc)
It was on today and I left it for about 8 hours and when I got back it was making no noise (no fans or anything) and when I moved the mouse to get the monitor to come up nothing happened. The power light on the front of the tower was lit but nothing was happening. I held the power button 10-15 seconds and it turned off. Waited a couple minutes and tried to boot it back up. The monitor had the little bouncing thing that it had nothing to connect to and the scanner started to boot as it always does when the computer starts up, but nothing from the tower.
I then unplugged the power supply and plugged it back in and tried to boot it again, still nothing. When I opened the tower there was a green light on, not sure what it was to (motherboard?)
I figure it is on its last leg - but I'd like to try and get it running to pull some files off it, if possible!
Computer is a gateway and running XP if that helps any
