Re: need help
I remember once in a blackout, had my comp on and everything just shut off. When I tried to turn back on, it was weird like the thing booted up but there was no picture on the screen. I waited a couple of minutes, and I tried rebooting. It worked then, but your problem is weird. Your PSU is probably fried, so just replace it.
