So i was putzing on 14, comp froze up a few times (this is normal for me) then it crashed and shut down. This is a normal event for me, so i was not worried by this.
So i waited for everything to load up again, maybe 30 mins, and i popped back on 14. Well this time, it just crashed, no lock up or anything. And instead of the normal reboot it went into a cycle of attempting to Boot up, the fans would go for about 2-3 seconds and everything would shut off.
I unplugged, tried diff plugs, all work fine with a clock, so none of them are bad, and i switched on and off the power switch on the back of the power supply. ( i looked in other forums a bit first to look for help) Anyway, after waiting about 10 mins, the computer "started" but when i say started, i mean all the fans turned on. The screen is blank as if the comp is off, and the green power light on the front of the cpu is out.
If i can't do anything to recover data, i'll deal, it sucks, but i have nothing valuable on there. But i guess i was just looking for suggestions. Sadly, i don't really have spare parts anywhere to experiment with switching things out. Also, the vid card fan is working, but there is a red light on the card thats on (i don;t know if its usually on or not). Now, we had a power out this past week, and the comp did the whole rev engine thing to start up, and took about 20 attempts before it finally came up. I don;t know if that fried anything, i mean i am sure it didn't help anything.
Anyway, i wanna know if anyone has suggestions on how to get it back up and running. I am guessing its not the power supply since the fans are running ( if i am wrong here, just let me know) So i am thinking it could be the processor or the motherboard i guess since the power light is out.
Again, and help is really appreciated.
