Well, the same thing happen to my laptop computer, you can hear the fan and another noise but it seems to turn on normally and right away turn off and do the same thing. It gives you firs the blackcreem with counting numbers from 30 down and or it says enter but the same thing happen again, I think something familiar happend to my computer long time ago and I insert the disk that came with the computer and make it as a new one, there was nothing else that I could do to save it. do you have some diskcds that came with you computer, to restore everything and leave it as a new one? that my help if you dont have nothing important in your computer save. If i know how to fix my i let you know.. see you and good luck. :)

You mentioned the fan coming on and the drives making a few sounds and you also mentioned a floppy drive, a CDRom Drive and a DVD drive but you did not say whether or not the computer has a processor or hard drive with an installed operatings system.
If it does have a hard disk w/installed operating system and it does have a processor installed on the mother board, there are a couple of simple things you might want to check. They are simple but sometimes the simplest of things can create major problems.
1. Check to see if the hard drive's power cable is connected. If it is, unplug it from the drive and then plug it back in.
2. Check the hard drive's data cable. Is it attached to both the hard drive and the motherboard. If so, unplug it at both ends then plug it back in.
3. With only 128 meg of RAM, in a normal configuration it will have either one 128 meg chip or two 64 meg chips. Either way, remove the RAM chip(s). If it has only one chip, simply remove it and then plug it back in. If it has two chips, you probably should remove both chips and then reinstall them one at a time and try booting the computer with each stick individually. One word of caution however - if you are new to computers, you want to be very carefull not to let the RAM chip(s) get damaged by static electricity. Turn the computer off but leave it plugged in. Before attempting to remove the RAM chip(s), touch a bare spot somewhere on the case to discharge any built up static electricity from your body.
If you are still having problems after performing the above checks, there are several other things that could be wrong with the computer. The hard drive could be bad, the motherboard could be bad, the power supply could be weak or bad - or any of a number of other components could be bad. If that is the case and the computer is very old, you will probably be better off just junking it and picking up another one.
Hope that helps - Graye
