computer doesn't boot!!!
Over the past year I have been having numerous problems with my computer. And after months and months of on and off debugging I have came to the conclusion that it was the power supply that gave me my problem.
Now that I have a new power supply. My computer sometimes has problems either shutting down or booting up. Sometimes I will go out for 10 minutes and when I come back all I see is a black screen on my computer. Now it can't be the power supply because I had two brand new power supplies and it happened to both. Its not the ram because I have done over 8 hours of memtest with no errors. I have reformatted my computer so there are no viruses. I am starting to think...could it be my hard drive?
My old power supply did fry about a month ago. I am thinking in that time, could it have fried my hard drive?
Usually after a day's rest.. My computer will return to normal. I have no idea why? But my temps read about 45 C, so its not hot.
if i leave the computer on long enough, it seems to freeze at the windows xp screen..and then i see the blue screen of death..and then it restarts. I can sometimes get into safe mode, but it takes forever.
Any ideas would be appreciative.
