My cpu crashed a few nights ago where my screen went black and I couldn't shut it down, the power button was flashing. I tried to hold the button several times but it didn't work. After half an hour I decided to turn of my power strip. The cpu was blowing some warm air out of the back. I waited until the next day to restart it. I have scanned for viruses with my own Kapersky and online checks, and used several sypware scanners. Nothing has shown up. I thought maybe update my drivers and check microsoft update. Just the regular stuff. I found some drivers by googling my video & audio driver. I restarted and it worked fine for a day. The next day it was on for 20 minutes, I can't remember what I was doing, I think listening to music with MediaMonkey. I got a frequency out of range message on the monitor and had to manually shut it down to restart.
I have backed everything up and have a boot disk, just in case. I bought my cpu from Best Buy and it didn't come with a Windows installation cd. I have a E-Machines T6410 w/ 1 gb ram, 3200+ AMD Athalon 64 processor, ATI Radeon Xpress 200 graphics card. If I can give any more info let me know. Oh yeah, I'm also having audio problems with it slowing down and sounding choppy when I'm on the internet. I know someone here can help me, you have twice. Thanks.
