I am using my laptop at present as everytime I switch my computer on it does not load up. It is noteably noisier as well - Is there anything that I can press on start up or is it a case of I need a new one LOL.

What exactly happens? Do you get anything on the screen? What noises do you get? Are there any lights?

Hi

No I get nothing on the screen, the power light on the tower flashes and it doesn't boot up. Some have said it could be the motherboard, probably not the hard drive.

I don't want to order the wrong part so I think I will have to take it to a shop and get them to see where the problem is.

It could be one of several things that are faulty. It is probably best to take it to a repair shop to be diagnosed.
