The reason that the pc was thrown away is because something went wrong with it, and the owners know nothing about pc's or it would have been too expensive for them to fix. But, saying that you could get it working again!!! when a pc doesn't work its the major components you have to look at, the memory the CPU (processor) the PSU (power supply) or the motherboard, first i would look at the memory, if this goes faulty the pc will not start up and just beep, try a new PSU that may be the main problem and check the above

Hello,

I would suggest checking the motherboard for any burned or blackened spots on the motherboard or any add-on cards that may be present. You should be able to get something on the display as long as you have good power and a good video card. You still run the risk of having a bad hard drive or cd rom.

Hope this helps. Please make sure that you rate this information.

Thanks

Power supply turns itself off


could be another part in the computer shutting it off. Try unplugging all your drives and then put them in one at a time and reboot every time to see if it still shuts off.

Can figure out how to remove the cd drive from the actual case


I work at a computer repair shop and I have had a similiar problem with the new compaqs, but the solution is simple. take the side cover off, look in the front of the machine right in the corner where the front bezel and the metal frame meet. There are little plastic tabs on the top and bottom corner. You need to push those tabs either toward you or away from you(depending on model). While those tabs are moved, pull gently on the front bezel. After the bezel is removed, you should be able to remove the drives by taking out the screws and pulling the drives out the front of the case. Hope this helps

Computer will never turn on


Odds are good your computer is quite dirty on the inside. If you have never opened the computer I suggest you simply buy a new one, to save time and frustration.

But since you are here, this is what to look for:
Dirty inside - Open the computer and blow all the dust out. Use DRY air.
Power supply - if you have power but no lights on your motherboard anywhere, check your computer's power supply. This may mean removing it and testing in a different computer or using a multi-meter and something to turn it on.
Power switch - Perhaps your switch is simply worn out. Open the computer and follow the wires from the button to the motherboard. Remove the connection and short those two pins for a moment. If your switch is bad, your computer should now be booting up.
Hard drive failure - If you mean will not boot when you say "will never turn on" your hard drive may have failed. If this is the case you can simply replace the hard drive. BUT, you will have to re-install all of your programs AND your operating system. Better to simply buy a new computer if that is the case, unless you have all of your original disks and a fast internet connection.

Red light flashing on power button


how I solve this issue of a customer of mine.
replaced power supply and one memory stick was faulty
lesson learned: check the obvious first.. .Powersupply.. if problems persists... check your ram... if you have 2 sticks of ram,, try reseating and using one at a time or swap with known good memory.
