So I had a computer built from scratch for me 6 weeks ago that has been running flawlessly until yesterday. I turned on my computer yesterday morning, went out the rest of the day, and when I returned home the computer had turned itself off. I thought that perhaps I had done it myself absent mindedly and thought nothing of it. Until this morning, I turn it on and it freezes just before the Vista startup. Now I'm desperately hoping someone here can offer some advice/insight into why or what I could do to help diagnose/fix the problem.
Right now the machine turns on, lights up, fans are running, and the first screen runs through my devices which appear normally. Then a second black screen reads ""Sil 3132 SATALink BIO Version 7.3.13, Copyright © 1997-2006 Silicon Image, Inc." Then it freezes, just sitting there...forever until I turn it off.
I've turned it off/on several times and tried to tap the Esc, F8, and Ctrl key at startup and nothing happens. I've totally stuck on what to do next? Any ideas?
