I'm not a tech but if you turn on the computer and there is no error message nor
any message such as telling you the computer is doing something such as booting up,
then it sounds to me like a hardware failure.
It is a real inconvenience installing and customizing everything on a new machine
but if your machine is that old, it may not be worth spending money on it an
gambling that nothing else will go wrong for long enough to make the expense worth
it. I don't know how much you would spend but I wouldn't be surprised if it would
be more than 150 dollars. So I'm not saying what you should do. I'm saying that
if your machine is very old, as you imply, it is a gamble.

On Sunday morning, I turned on my computer and heard jaws say, preparing for
I have never heard that before. I tried to do everything with the computer and
nothing works. It just sits there. my sighted wife says it lights up, but that's
all. So my computer is now a rock that lights up. I can't get Microsoft to help,
because I can't get into the computer to connect to them.
I am using a very old clunker computer, and if you like to watch the grass grow,
you might get something done with this guy. Is there anything I can do to get my
windows ten computer to function again, or has it gone to that big Best Buy store
in the sky? Help please, and it will be greatly appreciated. Jim
