  1. My friends inspiron 1100 crashed while she was working on it, and has now started to refuse to boot up. The power light comes on, and stays lit for a few seconds, then it shuts off. Nothing ever comes onscreen, and its plugged into the outlet. Any ideas as to how to fix it, or what happened?

    If you can, try the parts such as memory and cpu in another known-good box.
    This way you can rule out certain parts, leading you to the source of the problem eventualy.
