Ok Im having major problems with a computer that isn't even mine! In simple terms here is the problem:
1) I was not able to click into the user accounts from the main page of the Windows XP page, the mouse would go over it but didn't turn into the "little hand" to let me click
2) I turned the computer off by turning the switch off in the back. The first time this worked, however this kept happening. The last time this happened there was just a blue screen and the mouse was not moving at all. So I tried turning it off again, but now it won't turn back on!! When I press the button in the front it does nothing, not even a flicker of light. I had someone look at it and I cant remember what he said it probably was (something about the power outlet in the back needs to be replaced?)
3) He is going to come back tonight with a replacement, however I am in a very bad situation because this is not my computer. Its actually someone that I work for. I went on some sites and downloaded some programs that I would get fired if they saw!!! So since I was in a state of panic I decided to remove the hardrive and put it in another computer (IS THIS BAD?). I think I hooked everything up correctly, but when it started up the same thing happened! The Windows page comes up and shoes the users, but now this time the mouse is not moving at all. I don't think it is an issue with the mouse though....
Anyway, does anyone have insight on what is going on? I desperately need it! I have to get that stuff of the hard drive, that is the main priority. I brought the hard drive with me to work (I know I sound crazy but I cant lose my job!) I was thinking of trying to find a repair place around here, would the be able to do anything with just the hard drive??
Thanks! Please respond if you have answers, I am in a state of panic!!
