Disconnect the drive and try to boot to the BIOS (usually with F1, F2 or Delete key). If that doesn't work, try removing all cards from the computer (except a video card if the video port is not on the motherboard). If you can boot this way, try inserting back any removed cards to see what hangs it. Do you hear any beeps when the computer is booting (beep codes)?

Card started making loud clicking noise i have tried blowing dust out of it when i start my computer within a few minutes clicking starts again


Hi, couple main reasons to get loud clicking in a computer. First is the hard drive, so if you can turn the system off and disconnect the power and the information cable from the hard drive, yes your computer will not boot all the way back into windows but that is ok since you just want it running for awhile to see if the clicking stops. Next thing would definitely be the fans, any fan in the system, the blade part of the fans can get loose sometimes and start to hit the sides as it spins around, you need to be sure about which part it is that is causing it, it can come from the power supply fan, the case fan, the video card fan, the cpu fan, and you might have more than one case fan, test by disconnecting one at a time just make sure to disconnect the device too so you do not over heat anything. Once you identify which fan just replace it, if its something like power supply or video card, unfortunately you might want to look into either warrantying the part or buying a new one.

Tecra M3 won't boot, hdd light comes on then off.


The hard disk can be installed in another computer, but it won't boot up and run unless the computer is the same make and model with the same devices as the previous computer.
If it is not then you need to do a fresh Windows install to get a working computer.
What you can do as an alternative is to install the hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

Computer runs but won't boot


is there a reset button on the power supply. if so try that. you might have accidently disconnected the hard drive cable. unplug AC and check all the connectors around the area where you installed the video card. make sure everthings connected. then before u close the case re connect the AC and check visually if the power is on and if everthings running.

Monitor not Running(shows only orange light)


Unplug everything from the motherboard leaving only processor, fan and memory and try to boot up. It will take you to bios screen halt after looking for boot device. If it uses a video card, make sure video card is properly inserted. Then start plugging in hard drive and other devices if system comes up.
