Won't boot up. Help!

My sister gave me her computer to use, but it won't boot up. The power supply seems fine because the fan starts running but it sounds like it powers up then slows down only to power up again. And it just has a blank black screen. Any suggestions? Is it the motherboard??

Could be a number of things, but first check the disc shaped CR2032 cmos battery located on the motherboard, in case it is flat. Then when the pc boots, you should get the cmos menu to enable you to alter the time and date. If still no boot, when it is booting press F8 and see if you can get to safe mode, and when in the menu select last known good configuration and press enter or a reboot. If you see no bios screen and the flashing cursor appears in the top left of the screen the cmos chip on the board is damaged, and the motherboard needs replacing.

You can try removing the ram to see if it's faulty otherwise I am afraid you are unlucky because could be a motheroard problem so the only solution is to bring your laptop to repair service.

Hard drive

It means that your HDD is damage, no good. Need to get another one and reformat your computer.
The way to troubleshoot any computer that won't turn on is checking the power supply fan to see if it does anything when pressing the power button. If you see that the fan try to start but stall, then there is a bad hardware install. What I do is take all the hardware out and start the troubleshooting by installing the hardware one at a time. When the computer stop responding after installing one of the hardware, then it means that this hardware is bad. You already troubleshoot the computer by installing the HDD and seeing that the computer won't start.

My computer won't boot up and the orange light just stays on. The moniter is working, the fans in the power supply is working

Could be your motherboard. Does anything come up on the screen at all when you boot up? Do you hear a beep at startup? Also check to make sure your hard drive is spinning just to be sure.

DELL 8400 MAKES A LOUD FAN NOISE AND WONT BOOT

There are 2 basic fans in Dell tower one for the power supply and the other for the Processor. If your computer is not booting then the Processor fan is most likely to be the culprit. What could be happening is that the Processor fan is no longer turning fast enough to cool the processor, so normal the processor when it over heats there is either protection to switch off the computer automatically or the computer won't boot. The best thing is to change the fan and make sure it is working properly but checking on the cables that they won't entangle on top of the fan to impede it's movement. You can easily damage your processor if the fan is not working properly.

This sounds like the power supply - before buying a new motherboard can you get voltages from the pin connectors that power the board? You can use a simple multi-meter - set to 12V and register the current.
