Hello folks, I'm trying to get an old computer running. Not that old, only about 4 years old. My hard drive crashed and I decided to go with an SSD. It is a new SSD and doesn't have any type of operating system on it yet. I would like to put Puppy Linux on the SSD. I took out the old HD and put in the new SSD. I tried turning it on, and the computer starts up, but the monitor keeps going to sleep. I'm not hearing any beeps either. I really don't know what I'm doing to tell the truth. I know I have to get the Linux program on the SSD but I have no idea how to get started. I think I have to put the Linux program on a USB drive but After that, I'm not sure what to do. If I put the USB drive in a slot, will it boot up from the USB drive? I'm kind of lost here but I don't have a lot of money to take the computer to a shop and let them get it going so I'm trying to do this on my own. I'm on a fixed income, SS, and I don't have the money to take this to a shop. Can anyone help me with this? I want to learn Linux and get away from Microsoft for the most part.
