Media Center m7060n PC Desktop: My m7060n Tower turns on, but the key board blinks...
My m7060n Tower turns on but the key board blinks once and stays off; the screen searches for signal without success and then turns off; the fan in the tower turns on and stays on; and the mouse light stays on.the Computer does not go through (power-on-self-test) post/bios for the keyboard to stay on long enough for me to use f10 12 and key "y" to enable its operation.
i want to buy a system recovery application to boot up from the cdrom.
do you have ideas of the problem and suggestions to rectify the issue?

It sounds like you have a board that is not booting at all. Remove everything from the board except the system RAM and CPU and switch it on. If it boots now, shut it down and then replace each individual item one at a time, booting the machine after each item is refitted/connected until you fit something that prevents the machine from booting. Pay special attention to system RAM sticks by removing them/it and refitting it as bad connections in the RAM socket can also cause a boot failure but removing and refitting the sticks usually cures this issue.

One long beep is usually a ram issue, If you are confortable opening the case, you see the ram sticks. They are retained with a white clip on both ends of the stick. Press these down, to release the ram, then firmly press the stick straight down, till the retaining tabs click back into place and lock. If the ram was removed, make sure a stick is in slot #1. The slots should be numbered, on the ends. Good Luck!!
if you can open your desktop..try to replace the ide cable of the DVD/Cdrom it might be deffective.before you open your pc just make sure that the power is off.after changing the ide cable of your dvd the system will automatically detect your drive.if you got same problem again try to consult your hardware vendor to claim your warranty parts and service.good luck
