Question PC won't turn on and need help wiping a hard drive

So my friend recently gave me his old PC

Components:
GPU - GT 610
CPU and Motherboard - no idea, but it's AMD
PSU - some basic one that gives out a power of 450

The issue is that the only hard drive i have that i could use for it is from my old Xbox, but i haven't wiped it yet.
when i turn the PC on, only the power button lights up, and the hard drive spins. No fans spin, no lights on the motherboard, but the GPU, CPU cooler, and motherboard gets really hot.

I plug it into my monitor and it comes up with no signal when the PC is supposedly turned on

I have a laptop where i can download the drivers or windows installer for a USB if that makes any difference

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks :)

Hi,
Sorry about your problem.
Try a CMOS/BIOS RESET.
Take out the CMOS battery and hold the power button for 30 secs then put it back in and try it now.

Hope I helped!
