Hello. I have this pc that I built back around 2002 that I have not used in a while. I would like to start it back up again so I can give it to my sis, problem is, it won't! All it does when I power it on is kick the fans on and I can hear the HD as well. It does all this for about 5 seconds then shuts off. There is no display, no beeps or nothing. I don't have parts to swap around with, so before I buy anything, I want to make sure its what I need.
One thing I DO notice though is that the video card does not kick on. I don't have another agp card on me to test out but, I figured if that was bad then wouldn't there at least be a beep code? I'm thinking theres either more than one prob. or maybe the mother board is bad? Any suggestions would be appreciated thanks.
