    i've had this pc for a while now...goin on 3 years, and it works great.
    its got 256mb of ram and a 40 gb hard drive and i love it. but recently
    it hasnt been booting. i push the power button, the fan comes on, the
    cd drive start whirring, but the green power light wont come on. its
    running windows xp sp2 home edition, if that helps any. i tried going
    to compaq but they gave me some elaborate complicated fix. then i
    decided to check the underground. so come on guys, help a guy out.

    Open the case and remove and reseat the memory modules. If this
    doesn't help, carefully remove and reseat the processor.
