    Sounds like you have a boat anchor there "flashing square that changes from little face,s to question mark "

    Machine cannot find hard drive or OS to boot from. The very least you will need are the system disk, give it back it is useless unless you have a boat. Free stuff is just free nothing more you will learn this as you grow.

    Cheers,
