@sgfinley -- have you tried replacing the power-supply?  Or, using a multi-meter to measure the power on each lead?

I'll check the voltage with a multimeter.  Incidentally i got it to power on (lucky I guess) and now Win 10 wont boot up........ tries to repair itself to no avail.  Going from bad to worse 🙂

@sgfinley -- can you remove the disk-drive, and connect it as a secondary disk-drive in some other computer?  Then, download/install/run the free SPECCY software. Expand its "storage" section, and expand the "SMART" section. This section reports on the detailed "health" of the disk-drive. If you get "warnings", it is time to replace the disk-drive.

 

Or, if you have a "spare" disk-drive that is known to be in good condition, install it in your computer, and try to install Windows onto it. If it crashes, it could be a failing motherboard.

 

Or, if you have a "spare" disk-drive that is known to be in good condition, connect it to a "spare" computer, install Windows on it, then move this disk-drive back to your computer, and try to boot this copy of Windows on your computer.  Again, it could be a failing motherboard.
