    Basicly.. I come home one day and my computer was turned off (Like usual) And I booted it up it beeped three times and wouldn't turn off unless i held the power button down or removed the cable to the power socket. As I kept removing the power cable and fidgeting around inside it started working again... I then got told by a friend that i can upgrade from Windows xp to windows 7 without paying so I believed him and he then got to work by downloading and install... He then ran a .EXE file and it began installing windows 7 as it got to part 2 when it needed rebooting it turned off... I then turned my pc on and it would try and load boot manager? and it said do you want to load ( Old windows, Windows 7 or Ubuntu) So I tried all 3 the windows 7 one took me to when it starts up and it crashed (every time) the windows xp one didn't work at all and the ubuntu was just a ail install where wubuntu or something couldn't install (this worked on my Eee pc Btw) I then turned it off and gave it too my auntie who then took it home and tried to solve the problem... The problem was that the 3 beeps kept happening and I don't know the rest all i knew was that it was "****ed" .. I then tried a load of different ways of troubleshooting the problem, But none worked i then fiddled around with the cables until I come across an option to open BIOS But I didn't think much of it and thought, It works.. Soo then i plugged in one of my three hard drives and there was no monitor signal again, i then gave up and resorted to asking for a fix on this forum... My Computer specs which i know of are :

    2 GB of ram
    An Asus Graphics card Eah4350 Silent?
    Some what Intel motherboard
    A western digital 80 GB SATA hard drive
    And 2 other hard drive which are not SATA But are around 120 ea
    E machine model E4231
    ^ that's all i know about my pc..

    I appreciate all help, And Thanks for trying....

    I used one of my other two hard drive and got to a black screen saying

    EXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
    EXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent
    No Bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key

    But when i insert one of my ubuntu/Linux mint dics i got our of a Linux magzine it doesn't recognise the disc...
    Also i have a Maxtor external drive (640GB) which for some reason wont turn on, I was thinking of installing ubuntu using this as a usb, Is this possible ?
    And Thanks for the reply...

    Those messages mean the computer can't find a device to boot from.

    Assuming the drive is known to be good, that leaves the cable, the motherboard, or the power supply.

    If you can boot from a USB flash drive, you can do that, but it won't fix the hardware problem.

    That would further indicate a hardware problem. Did you check the drive connection, replace the cable, switch motherboard ports, etc?

    If you just stuck a Windows XP disk in, that's not going to fix the problem.
