    Went to turn on the pc today. Powered on but there was no video signal going to the monitor. The computer also wasn't making a lot of noise :\

    I tried it with a PCI video card instead..no luck. Disconnected the hard drive, no luck their either. I've heard no beeps whatsoever to signal any problems.

    I don't have a clue what it could be.

    Anyone got any ideas? Its a pentium 1.3gigahertz, Intel motherboard. It's a gateway pc. If you need any information about the problem just ask

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Well.......it oculd be a power supply related issue. Did you try a different powersupply if one is available?

    I thought it might be a power problem..

    Anyway I tried booting it up again a while ago and it worked perfectly. Weird.

    Thanks for replying anyway :)

    My cd writer and dvd drives died lately though :\

    The dvd drives powers up and opens, but doesn't detect a cd in the drive. I heard a rattling noise so i opened the drive. the rattling comes from the motor that spins the cd. Anything I can do?

    The cd writer is just completely dead..wont power up at all :(

    I guess the only thing you can do is.........replace them. The motor is the main part and cannot be replaced. I guess you can repair them if you know how. As for not powering up at all? Ya that needs to be replaced too.
