Alright guys, everyone knows that I'm a huge computer guy and know what I'm doing when I go to fix a computer. But i have this problem that I just cannot figure out. I have this old Gateway computer from 2002 with XP home edition. originally when it stopped working it would keep showing the loading windows XP screen and then the computer would automatically restart and it would do this over and over again. but just yesterday the computer stopped working entirely and I cannot even get a picture on the screen anymore, and yes I have checked all of my connections, and re inserted the video card. I tried to reinstall windows on it but it won't let me, the directiosn on the CD to reinstall windows for this computer says put disc in, restart computer, reinstall windows. but I can't get the computer to go for reinstalling windows. and the CD isn't scratched. is there a way to fix this thing or is it pretty much trash and I should take out the few valuable pieces and trash it? No worries if I can't get it fixed though since I do have 2 other computers that are both much newer and better. I was just wondering if I could get my older one to run so I could play some games over the network.
