Whats happening is that sometimes when I boot up my computer the boot (motherboard logo) screen is scrambled. The only other symptom that I can tell is that about one second after I push the power button the fans in my computer (specifically the video card since its the loudest) slow down and get a bit quieter.
I had thought it was caused by a malfunctioning fan at first because the fan was making a horrible noise and the scrambling didn't seem to occur after I shut down and unplugged the fan.
But then when it happened again I thought it might be because the electric socket couldn't meet the power demands of my setup.
I'm pretty sure I ruled that out when I used an extension cord to plug the computer in across the room. Now its happening again and I'm really starting to get worried, as I have no idea what could be causing it now. The only thing that changed from when there was no problem to when it started was that I had moved from my dorm room back home
Does anybody have any ideas?
