I got a used gateway pc and it won't do anything. The light on the button lights up and you can here it run but thats it Answered
When I plug it in it automatically comes on by it self. All I get on the monitor is a window that explains that the monitor is working and something about the power. I new there was something wrong with it when I got it but how do I get it to come on so I can get further into to see what else is wrong with it. I would like to run the hard drive down to see everything on it like the cops do it. It is my PC now so it would be legal to do that. I just need to learn how. I have another PC but it is my old one that is a windows 98 so its older that the XP that I want to get going. Does anyone out there that has an Instructable that will show me step by step on how to run the hard drive down? If anyone has an Instructable showing step by step on the first PC like a check list that should be done in order to get it up and running right to where I can hook it up to the Internet. Thanks to anyone who can help me because this has to be done on the cheap.
