Default Re: Failing to Start up

It could be a number of things. Have you cleaned out the dust lately? Are all the fans working? It could be overheating.

Does the computer Beep? If any component is bad it could short out the system. I mean any component from a dc/dvd drive to the video or cpu.

It could be a power supply issue or a problem with the power circuitry on the motherboard.

With a computer this old you may wind up spending more money trying to fix the problem than you would buying a new computer.
