Ok so after having no errors of any sort, no driver problems, no problems with my copy of XP I decided to open up the tower and take a look. Well the first thing I notice is that it's a little quieter then normal and I thought that was a little funny. Infact I didn't hear my video card at all, which I normally hear a little twirl of the fan. After a closer look the fans not running at all, so I take my hand and just hold it over my video card and it's hot.
So... with my fan being fried would that be enough to cause Windows to not want to start up?
Granted this is a very old system and the card that was in it is a nVidia 128mb GeForce4 4600 TI AGP card. My plans were to hand this computer down to someone as a gift... any recommendations on a card that could replace the current one but still be an upgrade to it?
Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!
