Turned on cisnet 80 gig computer and would not turn completely on, green light flashed for a couple seconds then red light stayed on. Opened cpu and fan was lose, reconnected and still would not work. Repair store thought that it was processor or short in mother board. Any answers? If I purchase an external hard drive case, what size would it be.
my sister gave me cisnet with out a moniter but i hooked up a dell moniter, and the moniter light is on but its orange. the cisnet is running what could be the problem could it bve the video card
Re: computer would not boot up, only showed red light
I'd say power supply first.
If you have an expansion slot filled with a video card, remove the video card (provided you have onboard video connector as well) then try to reboot. I just went through similar issues with an GForce video card, it went bad, but the machine appeared to boot althugh I couldn't see the screen. Removed the card & it came up using minimal VGA drivers provide with WinXP.
Obviously you cannot check the video driver if you're not booting up...and seeing the screen.
Find a buddy with a regular monitor and hook it up and try to boot. Dell monitors sometimes require their propietary drivers, so write down the model when you take your pc to a friend's place, and DL the driver and install it (provided you got it to boot up)

I know what is the problem the same thing happen to me before you need to open your ps3 and look for a battery that the ps3 have inside. the battery is locate under the motherboard take out and them put it back and this is everything whem you finish try to turn on your ps3.
Do you have a windows XP cd?
If so you can try booting from the cd and running recovery console.
from recovery console type chkdsk -r
This should repair any bad sectors on your drive, allowing the drive to boot

OK ... after a lot of trial and error, I got mine to work. I think it may be a really low charge or something. I had to press the power button until it was completely dark ... no flashing faint green or any colors. Then when I plugged it in, I got a solid red and left it for awhile. Then when I pressed the power button I got yellow, red and green ... the computer recognized it and then got a solid yellow.
Before when I had it plugged in, I'd get a lot of red random flashing ... and it just didn't seem to charge at all ... even after a full day.
I think the issue was that it was in this "flashing state (red when connected, very faint green when disconnected)" It wasn't easy to get it to turn off completely. Most of the presses of the power button didn't change the state at all. But if I got it just right, I could see the faint green light go off. That's when I plugged it in and got a solid red light, and eventually a good charge.
