I was copying some files from my cd drive to my desktop and my computer just turns off suddenly. When I try to boot back up, i noticed that the computer just hangs. My cd drive's busy light is on, as well as the computer's busy light and nothing else is going on. The screen is completely black and blank, it doesnt even go to the bios setup screen either.What could be causing this?? a friend of mine told me that it might be the memory or my motherboard, but i wanted to get second opinion before i actually go out and buy a new one. any help/advice would be appreciated. thanks.
I'm currently running windows XP Pro service pack 2
1ghz pentium 3
