Try to connect on other PC, see whether it works or not!, IF YES, then ur COMPUTER PROBLEMS, IF NOT..........then it is ur H/W problems, then i think since it was NOT accessible.. it is time to CHANGE NEW H/W.. thats all........


TRY installing LINUX based OS, connect it... see whether can BOOT or not!, IF YES, i think u should know what-to-do NEXT, right? adious goodluck!
