I have been working on an old Pentium 4 1.8Ghz trying to get it operating. Things were going great a nd it was working wonderfully. Than I shut down the computer, tried to restart it but no luck - I couldnt even shut it down again using the power button - I had to remove the power cord from the computer. Now, everytime I connect the power cord back, the computer automatically starts, makes an endless ticking noise and nothing happens.
I disconnected all the hard drives and Cd Rom drives and the ticking continued. Only when I disconnected the cable of the power switch the ticking stopped but the computer still didnt work.
How do I bring the computer back to life?

I also have had this problem, upon inserting the disk, the computer reads it and just as qkicly ejects it saying that there is no unused space available. It gets frustrating, I simply pushed the disk tray with same disk on it, back into the tower. I must do this everytime I want to copy a disk, but after putting it in a second time it works great, no problem. Give it a try.If you have and no result, you could try shutting down your computer, it sounds silly but that is the solution to almost all of our little computer problems. Simply restarting seems to clear things up a little, computers our goofy that way, and I am sure that some techno geek could explain it all- but for now we manage. Hope that this is of some help to you. God bless...
Hi, you need do follow things:
1) check RAM in the back small cover of laptop, clean RAM pins and slots set back or change RAM position each other ,or replace other RAM(same model) if old RAM not works.
2) take out the wireless card in the back small cover that is MINI PCI slot, then turn on. sometimes it cancause this trouble.
help you fix it, and any question keep in touch please.
hi it sounds like you need to replace the laser ? like most things they hate to be droped ? but try this first push the laser back gently with a cotton bud and see if it works if not then laser needs replacing ?
I believe your old sound card may be of higher quality than your new one, I had the same problem years ago what I did was this, I ran my speakers through an old dedicated dubbing cassette player out of an old kenwood stack stereo then into the computer, the cassette has a mild adjustable preamp when in record, you will have to put the deck on record the rest of the time with a blank tape- any old cassete deck will work.(thrift store) and your going to need a couple parts from radio shack. If you have the know how I suggest switching the audio cards out, drivers etc and / or seeing if you can have them both plugged in without an issue. If issue then try cassette then call and complain to the computer company for installing sub standard equipment.
computer audio output-> line in cassette->line out cassette-> line to speaker input
what socket is the Pentium 3? Socket A. The sockets have to be compatible for example you can't upgrade a Dual Core for a Core 2 Duo because although the chipsets look the same the motherboard may not support the new instruction set. I had this problem recently as i wanted to upgrade my Intel Celeron D 3.02ghz to the Pentium Dual Core 1.8ghz and although the chips were identical and fitted perfectly in my mobo, the actual mobo i was using (foxconn) wouldnt work with it forcing me to buy an ASRock mobo and replace the entire system.
