VPR Matrix 226R-Blank screen when powered up,LED in front blinks

After I reorganized my office I moved my PC and then reconnected and then bam! Not working anymore. The screen stays black,No usb ports show power up, Drive E: (dvd-rom) stays lit up and the little blue led on the front of the tower (processing light) stays blinking on and off very rapidly. I am running XP pro. Could this be a power supply problem or a motherboard gone bad?
I have opened the tower and checked that all connectors are seated properly and retried only to see same results.

    This could be either the Motherboard, or the Power supply. It also could be the RAM (memory sticks) Try taking out all Memory sticks and then inserting them back in one at a time. First being from left to right. Second stick however will be in 3rd slot however. Then 3rd stick in 2nd slot, and last stick in 4th.

Not a power problem. Could a memory problem try changing the memory (DDR SDRAM), see if monitor comes on and if the system does a POST (power on self test) That should indacate any further problems if any.

I am getting rid of an old vpr matrix desktop computer (model 1800)and I want to take out the hard drive to keep anyone from getting my personal data. I realized when I took off the side that I don't know...

To exactly identify what a hard disk looks like...go to and type "hard disk" then click on "images" at the upper lefthand side of a google page. You will see a lot of pictures of a hard disk or hard drive. It comes in two formats though for desktops, IDE and SATA. The one that has a connector that is about half-inch wide is the SATA type. The IDE has the 40-pin wide flat 'ribbon' cable.
If you need to access it through a USB port, get a USB adapter for the hard drive. It comes with the power supply brick too (for 3.5-inch drives).
