Having problems with your IBM NetVista M41 PC Desktop ?

Won't boot. I was given a netvista machine to fix up and give to my nephew. Last week the machine was working. However, I was going to put a second drive in, so I opened tha case. When I opened it, the hard drive was just sitting in the bottom of the case so I attached it where it belongs. Now, when I try to turn it on, it comes on for 3 seconds, turns off, and then 3 seconds later it starts up again, however, it never boots. Any thoughts? I really need some help because my mother-in-law is supp
