Can't Boot Up

June 29, 2011 at 17:40:04
Specs: Windows 98SE
Compaq desktop 98SE. Nothing happens when try to boot up. Monitor and Cable works when connected to another Comp. Tried various disc I have including Partition Magic but nothing happens. Comp does power up and some noise is heard, just a black screen. I am working with this comp as a learning tool and and ask for guidance as to steps I need to follow to determine problem.

Thanks, Stich

If you're not getting a display on the screen, you're wasting your time by trying any software disks. You have a hardware problem. It's difficult to tell you how to troubleshoot when you don't list the make/model of the system, the system specs, or what you've tried so far. Have you opened the case yet?
