Hi All,

Can anyone tell Me where I can get a cheap tower unit to replace mine which has packed up! I only want it to surf the net and for some work using word. Cheaper the better but not secondhand as I have gone through two seconds in the last year! It would be nice to have windows 7 but not essential.

Cheers,

Mike.

Most new systems will probably be quite high spec, so it depends on your budget. Might be best to have a look at Ebuyer and see if there are any there that fit the bill, you can filter on price, spec etc etc,

This si the selection for the sub £200 mark.

thought about getting it repaired? can you describe the fault?

It started off giving a long beep on start up, I would then unplug it at the mains and after a few attempts it would boot up. However it now does not give any beep and just shows a power light. Don't want to spend too much money on it to be honest.

I will have a look on the ebuyer site, thanks.

I have just managed to boot up the pc which is playing up. One thing it has done is reset the year to 2003, can anyone shed some light as to why this would happen.

Probably the battery gone on the motherboard. Take it down (old battery) to a hardware store, jewelers, camera shop ect and get a new one.:thumbsup:

Would the battery cause the computer to give those long beeps on start up?

Some motherboards detect when it is low so yes maybe.:thumbsup:

bleeps mean different things on differnt computers try and read the motherboard model off of the moterboard its self and research the bleep codes on google... if theres nothin you want on the computer press delete or F12 on boot up enter BIOS look for boot priority set the CD ROM to first and save and exit then put in a windows disc and follows the instructions to format and install it yourself a motherboard battery wouldnt stop it from getting into windows it would warn you on bootup that it will use defaults but you still can proceed
