A very strange problem
« on: December 18, 2007, 07:01:33 PM »
Just today I was using my computer (playing system shock2 if that is any help) and it started to get a little slow.  I restarted my computer and then a flash of the blue screen of death then I canít turn it back on.  I think itís a problem with my motherboard or processor because every thing seems like itís working normally I can hear the hard drives spin up, monitor still works, video card is fine.  Iím at a loss what to do Iíve un and replugged every thing and still nothing any ideas?

Might need to explain this a little better because you wouldn't be able to tell if the video card or monitor is fine if there isn't a working processor or motherboard and the computer isn't starting up.

When you turn it on, exactly what is happening?

What error message, if any, was present on the BSOD you mentioned?

When booting, do you get to the POST screen?

Are there any beeps?

Also need full specs for your system.
