    My PC will not start up Windows XP. I have had it for 5 years without any
    problems, it is now the secondary PC for my kids to use. When powering on,
    you can see the memory loading up, then the screen momentarily shows the
    Intel processor page as normal, then a vibrating noise which I assume is the
    hard disk starting up, then nothing. I opened up the PC, reseated the memory,
    checked for loose connections but nothing obvious. Anybody any ideas, or is
    it a trip to PC World for a new one?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions

    PS - I tried inserting the recovery disks but nothing happened!
