i was filding with the HDD yesturday taking it in and out to fix an lsass.exe error (see here) and now it won't start up. When I hit the power button, the fan turrns on the firmiliar noise from the HDD to signal its starting and being accessed and everything seems to be working but the monitor stays blank repeating 'no signal'.
The start button also doesn't respond when I hold it down for about 6-8seconds for it to shutdown - the computer continues to run. I have to manually hit the switch at the back of the tower near the power cord to turn the system off.
I was also fidling with the fan yesturday, the [bleep] thing is too loud and im thinking of replacing it. I undid one hook but then pushed it back into place thinking i shouldn't tamper with it - could this have possibly corrupted the processor or damaged something around it?
Thanks for your help so far, I need to get this [bleep] thing fixed, especially since I have university work to complete!
Issue resolved, see below for cause. I did do some research in this, if anyone else is experiencing similar problems, it will be most likely due to your processor or motherboard.
