My pals PC won't boot. When switched on, all we get on the monitor is a screen displaying details of the Graphics Card. No beeps and can't get into the Bios. Any thoughts?

Has it got onboard graphics? if so you could take out the card and then see if it will boot up or if you can into BIOS.

A quick google reveals could be a PSU problem.

Thanks Lotvic. There is no Graph Card so I think this means the graphics are onboard?

Unplug all devices in USB ports

check no disks in drives retry

if still same unplug all drives and see if it will boot to an error message.

Cant get to Safe Mode. Have tried a replacement Power Unit. No good! Think the Mbd perhaps has gone kaput?

I have another old but functional PC. If I take the HD out of the duff PC and put it into the working one, will it function OK?

Not to boot the system as the drivers will be for the wrong motherboard.

If IDE set as slave, if sata then no problem, you should then be able to get data off the drive

if you get Access denied then we need to know what OP system as you will need to take ownership of the files.
