I was about to enjoy a nice morning of World of Warcraft, and when booted it up for probably my 900th time, it froze, whole PC lockedup, so i rebooted, only to find that the fan on the pentium fan would continue to spin, (normally it would spin for a brief moment then stop on booting sequence). The fan would continue to spin, but it would not engage into the boot sequence, just a black screen...

Im really not sure whats happened here, maybe the pentiums burned out or something, or the mobo itself, i honestly dont have any idea though, nor how to test it...

any suggestions?

Hi,

It could be a number of things, first I would troubleshoot the psu (power supply) if you have a volt meter I can tell you how to do this.

Or you could try another psu if you have a spare or can barrow one. I would not run out and buy one as this may not be it

List your system specs or the brand name, model name and model number of your computer.
