Question about Computers & Internet
This is a new machine used less than 20 hours. then idle for 63 days gue to ill health.. Now the machine will not boot. I suspect failing to activate Vista may be the trouble. I have tried re-installing, without success. Have you come across this before and how do I fix it?
When you say the machine will not boot, do you mean that you do not even get the startup splash screen during the post? And when you say you tried reinstalling, Did you get the Vista DVD to boot? If the Vista DVD would not boot the system, then activation is not the problem. Your system should give you at least a single beep during startup. If you aren't getting this far, then your problem could be either the motherboard or the power supply.
