Think your power supply died. Check that out first since they are relatively inexpensive. Or throw in a known working PS to see if that does the trick. Write back with results for further info.

You don't have a display problem, you have a hard drive problem.
It is probably a file system corruption.
Insert the Windows XP install disk into your CD drive and boot to it. At the first setup screen, press R to repair windows from the recovery console. Once the recovery console loads, type
chkdsk /r and then press Enter. Once this finishes, remove the CD and reboot. With any luck, you will be able to boot successfully, if not, come back and give details about what happens.

You don't. The WPS button is on the router. Press it and, when the latop sees the wireless network, it will ask you to enter the pin. The pin is normally writen on the sideor bottom of the router on a sticker.

In this case, make sure that the monitor is connected properly to the tower and there is no loose connection. Also, cross-check the buttons on the monitor to make sure that the monitor is turned on. If you still face the issue, try connecting your monitor to a different power outlet (if feasible) and see if that works.

If the issue still persists, you may consider using another working monitor temporarily (if feasible) to check if there is any issue with your current monitor. If the issue is still not resolved, you are advised to contact a local technician or technical support team of your OEM for further assistance.

No, the motherboard chipset will not support the newer technology. While it is true that MBR disks cannot be larger than 2TB, this does not preclude you from using a larger disk as a boot disk. You simply have to partition the drive to make the first (boot) partition 2TB or less. You can then format and install the OS to that partition. You just can't leave the full 4TB as a single drive letter, and most users wouldn't do that anyway.

I think as supplied, this PC uses the on-board graphics (built into to the m/b). As this PC is 2nd hand, it may already contain a graphics card.
To fins about your system easily without opening the case you could go to and download a program "speccy" (free). Run this and it will tell you the details of your system including the graphics card type and detail of the memory. The simple memory can be obtained from Windows > My computer > (right click on) properties if I remember correctly).
Next go here You will find the minimum system requirements for playing WoW. You may find that to upgrade not only the graphics card but also the RAM. If you need and decide to upgrade the graphics card be sure to shoose one that is compatible with your computer with your computer/motherboard. I suspect ( it may be very similar to this one but I don't know for certain. This page contains all the details for that motherboard. Note that speccy will give you some detail about your motherboard and memory types required as well.
Depending on which graphics card you decide (this may be helpful ) on you may need to upgrade your power supply (PSU). It's very easy to do this; more difficult is to decide on which PSU to choose. You may need to some research (as with the graphics cards and memory). There is some good second hand stuff - PSUs graphics cards memory often available through ebay but caveat emptor - read listings very thoroughly and carefully, don't pay too much (set your limit before you look).
