Running Windows XP
Hey, i'm new here and need some help with my computer.:)
I setted my computer to start up automatically when I turn on the power switch in BIOS and now when I turn my switch on it wont start. It will only start when I turn the switch on and press the power button. That's not the problem though, just what happens since the real problem started. The real problem is when I turn on my computer nothing happens except the fans turns on and I hear my 2 CD drives spinning the CDS around (which they will open up when I press the open button; they work.) I know that my power supply is working properly but not sure weather its my motherboard or harddrive. The moniter wont show anything and I don't hear anything from my speakers. I tried the harddrive on this computer and it will show the windows loading screen (not sign in screen) but right after it loads a blue screen appears with alot of text for a about a few split seconds and restarts. When I run the computer without the hard drive or with a blank harddrive nothing happens. Is there a possible way to fix this? I appreciate your time for reading this thread.
