    Literally, what do you see on the monitor when it fails too boot? A blinking underscore '_' in the upper left and does in jump 2-3 lines vertically or not?

    Huh? "Internet Pilot light"? That wording leads me to think you're looking at an ethernet connection status light and that doesn't matter at all at boot time.

    Depending upon your system make/model (??) the BIOS will give you either a glossed up logo of the company OR a b/w vga screen - - on that it flashes the underscore character until the BIOS finds an active partition and a valid MBR on that HD. The underscore will jump a line or two while the MBR is being loaded and that quickly leads to booting the MS kernel.

    Sorry, but I try to explain everything that happened when the problem is present. I know is something with power source. But the pilot of the broadband light remains off during the problem to.

    HMM; again, ignore all internet symptoms or lights on the modem or computer.

    Please; WHAT's showing on the monitor????

    If there's power, you would get the above noted display and if the HD were failing, all kinds of other diagnostic information - - in that order.

    With nothing at all, power certainly is suspect.
    so you did the replacement? reverify all the connections are firmly seated.
