    I have recently purchased a 2nd had Toshia sp6000. It is missing the
    HD and power supply.

    I purchased a power supply but find that although it light up nothing
    else happens.

    Please excuse my ignorance but would I not expect to see the bios
    details to appear on the screen and the mempory check, even though
    there is still no hard drive?

    I just dont want to spend out on a hard drive if I am just wasting
    more money.

    Any advise would be appreciated.

    1. Excessive heat, which doesn't seem likely in your case because
    you're booting a cold machine.

    2. Improperly seated and locked CPU chip. Things worked when I re-
    inserted the CPU and made sure the locking screw's indicator arrow was
    pointing in the right direction - perpendicular to the edge of the
