Older system artifacts when booting
Okay so I'm playing around with this older Celeron system. Specs:
6gb Seagate hd
8mb ATI Rage Pro (pci)
52x cdrom + floppy
This computer will not boot from the hd or the floppy. Both have tested fine, but when I try and boot from a disk the computer hangs and when I try to boot Windows XP Pro setup from the hd the screen artifacts with ascii characters and then hangs. I am thinking either the mobo is bad or possibly the psu. I am running memtest on it right now.
I have a psu I can test it with, but I am wondering what everybody else thinks and if I can get some help with this one. I kinda want it for an older gaming system/internet machine.
No Brand, it's a white box.
edit: memtest came back fine.
