Question about Computers & Internet

Tips for a great answer:
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
A computer case holds major hardware components such as a motherboard, hard drives and expansion cards.
Desktop cases come in a variety of designs but they all share a similar feature; the motherboard is fastened in the special tray attached to one internal side panel of the case. Typically you need to open the opposite side panel to access the inside of the case.
Switch off the computer.
Unplug the power cords from the back panel of the computer and from all attached peripherals.
Depending on your computer's set up, you might also need to disconnect other cables and peripherals, including keyboard/mouse, network and video cables.
Turn the computer around to face its back panel.
Unscrew two screws on that fasten the side right panel of the case.
Modern cases typically use thumbscrews; loosen and then remove such screws with your fingers. Other cases employ release buttons that you need to push.
Consult your computer owner's manual if in doubt.
Slide the case side panel back to open the case.
Hope this helps.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
