help me diagnose computer problem

0 Number Double07 · June 14, 2015
I have an old HP pavilion desktop I abandoned years ago, but I want to get it to work.  Every time I start if up, the screen is shaky and it reads disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter.

I would bring it to a specialist, i can't look inside your computer from in my room out here in Europe. 

Open your computer and check it, look if everything is plugged in.

That's the first thing one should do, thats what they teached me at school.

You can look your whole life for the problem, but u won't find it when a cable is simply not plugged in...lol. So first check the power, does the hardware turn on? Check that first.

As i said, you should bring it to a local computer shop, you could probably destroy it instead of making it yourself.
