saviourforce Posted July 11, 2006 Posted July 11, 2006 To start off, I can't figure out the BIOS on the computer in question because all I get is a black screen when I press the power button; that, and a continuous stretch of beep. It had worked fine for 2 months until a series of sudden power failures in my apartment messed it up. After the power failures, my system stalled when trying to load the OS. I removed the HDD from that computer and placed it into this one and tried loading this system's OS, only to encounter the same problem. So I put the HDD back into the non-working computer and started trying to fix it. So, I did a Windows repair, but then it froze near the end. After restarting again, the system failed to even show a screen. Sometimes, the computer would stall with 2 out of the 4 lights on. Other times, it would stall with 1 out of the 4 lights on. I resetted the CMOS countless times, but to no advail. I'm presuming some sort of electricial surge (from the power outtages) had damaged a component (or components), but I'm not sure which. So I put that hard drive back into this computer, and I loaded the OS perfectly fine (I presume the Windows repair succeeded). So I'm just wondering which part or parts are possibly damaged, or if I just have to do something else to them without sending them back to the manufacturer. Sorry in advance if I left any important information out. Thanks! Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
