Computer not turning on
Recently I have had trouble with my computer, I would turn it on and the fans would spin for about 1/2 a second and then they would stop and all I would get was a blue power LED. At first I thought it was the video card because it would run fine without it plugged into the motherboard so I RMA'd it on newegg. Today I rememberd my I still had my grandfathers PC he had so I looked in it and found a PCI video card, I popped it in and it worked. I loaded up vista and it crashed (probibly because the video card is so old) I turned the PC back on and I got the blue power LED. I looked in my computer, tightend the RAM and turned it on again, still the blue power LED. I removed a stick of RAM and it booted I attempted to install a copy of windows 2000, when somthing with partitioning went wrong I shut it down so I would erase my HDD. I turned it on and got the blue power LED, I put the stick of RAM back in and it booted. I ran the windows memory test and nothing wen't wrong so the RAM is good. I shut it off and guess what? I got the blue power LED again, so I removed the video card, turned it on, turned it off and put the video card back in and booted to xubuntu I was going to install xubuntu on this computer but all it see's is my 500GB HDD, I restarted the computer (warm boot) attempted to load windows vista, the vista partition was good but I did delete the 55GB windows 7 partition I had.
Anways here are my questions:
1) What should I do about the HDD? I can load vista it's there but xubuntu cannot see it? Is there somthing I can use in the vista disk?
2) What is wrong with my computer? Is it a bad motherboard, PSU, or CPU? It's not the video card, or the ram because I have tried 2 video cards and I ran the memory test, I will bring the PSU into my PC servicing class tomorrow my techer has a PSU tester that will check to see if thats what has gone wrong.
anyways thanks for the help and I'm sorry if the post is a little messed up the video card I'm on only does 800x600 and the spell check in xubuntu is set to french or spanish and I don't know how to fix it
