Hello

I'd just like to say thanks to everyone who has helped me with my issue but I feel like I'm really going nowhere with this computer.

I just cant afford the parts right now so I will continue to save up until I can afford it.
Thanks again and I'm very sorry that I wasted your time.

Not A Robot, you didn't waste our time, that's what we all do here. I wasn't meaning to buy those parts, just see if you could borrow some of that from someone just to test out. The first thing is find out exactly what is wrong with it, and then worry about buying just that. We will still be here to help, whenever you need us to. But, se if you can find someone who will loan you the parts or swap with you for a day or two.

Yeah but none of my friends have any parts and the only guy who does, doesn't trust me as I might break it.

If you could come up with anything I'm still here.

If it is your power supply, it may not be putting out power. But, it could be a lot of other things to, like the Motherboard or other things.
