Hello everyone. So I work at an apartment complex and someone left what appears to be a gaming pc by our dumpster. Just before I found it I had tossed around the idea of building my own but i know very very little on the subject. So I've taken this thing to geek squad and they basically told me to scrap it but I've had other people tell me it could be worth saving. So here is what's on the inside (remember I have NO IDEA what I'm doing or if any of this is good so any insight would be greatly appreciated)
GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-G1 (black edition?)
4 Corsair Vengeance DDR3 (2x4GB)
MSI Twin Frozr III
Western Digital 500GB
Intel SSD 240GB
Intel SSD 300GB
Also has a power supply
So that's everything from what I've googled. Now when it comes to starting it up the power button on the top of the case is disconnected and I haven't gotten that far into figuring out where it goes but there is a power button right on the motherboard. If I press that it gets a little weird. It will turn on sometimes for 2 seconds. Sometimes 30. But eventually it will stay on and not shut off on it's own.
The display on the board itself will show both an A6 and an A9 readout and from what I've looked up those are error codes but again I don't know what I'm doing.
Unfortunately I didn't have a display to hook it up to but I'm hoping someone here knows more about this and would be willing to guide me in the right direction. As of now I don't know if I should just scrap this thing, get a couple bucks from the parts, add/replace parts and get it running again/ or start a new build of my own from scratch.
Any help at all would be awesome. Thanks!
