Hello Pros I have an emachine T2385. Bought it new 2003. I have never had any problems with it. Recently, when I pressed the power button to turn it on, the power light began blinking rapidly and the cpu began ticking. It's a really fast tick like a stopwatch makes and the LED blinking matches the ticking. I can hear the CPU fan spinning but that's the only thing happening. I removed the cover and disabled the floppy and both cd drives individually, thinking it may be one of them but the ticking continued. It sounds like it's coming from the mob & I'm praying it's not the hard drive. Anyone have any ideas before I take it to the local GeekSquad for a diagnosis? My PC's specs are: Power Supply: PS, 250 WATT 1670 Modem: MODEM, V.92 56K 1447 HDD: HDD, 80 GB 100125 LAN: LAN, 10/100 Integrated CPU Fan Type: Fan, H/SINK:117162CBL01,MPGA,P4P-2.4G,W/ 2296 ODD1: CDRW, NEXGEN (48X) 2434 MB: M/B,IMPERIAL-GLVE(EMA):845GL(B1),W/LAN MBEM2095IMPL FDD Model: FDD, SFD-321B/LTGNQ Video: Video, Integrated CPU: CPU, CEL-2.3G/128K/F400,mPGA478,SL6XJ CPEMIN100163 ODD2: DVD, NEXGEN (16X) FLAT 2510 CHASSIS: CHASSIS, NEXGEN-2 MAIN CHASSIS FRAME Memory: MEM, DDR-RAM 512MB (Max. 2GB) 2155 Any help is appreciated.
