Re: Hardware or Software problem?
software would not cause a pc to not turn on...
however, can you explain this more clearly?
"After it dies, It continues to attempt to turn on."
are you saying, you hit the power button, the pc lights come on, and/or beeps can be heard, then powers off....and then tries to power itself back on?
Or are you saying, you turn it on, bleep/bloop, nothing really happens but you hear harddrive noises? Do you see text at all on screen?
If I go by what you said initially, just sounds like you have a bad, almost dead, harddrive that isn't catching.
