Default A problem...

In the past few months I have become much more experienced in I.T,
My problem is my CPU fan is roaring at me, the hard disk light is lit up constantly and the computeer won't start, lovely!

Thanks in advance

I would open it up and check that all the wires and cables are in securely first...if that doesn't work, it sounds a bit like a motherboard problem, let us know how u go..

Have you tried resetting the BIOS? There will probably be a jumper near the battery, just move the jumper to the other pin, leave it for a min then put it back.

If what Raffaz said fails, maybe try taking as much as you can out, like unplug the harddrive and reseat the RAM etc...if you have onboard graphics as well try that..
