(I've heard you're not suppose to turn your computer off unless you really have to, ie: going on trips, but I didn't know if that was true)
For the last few months, my computer has been locking up on me, it shows a solid green light and a red flashing light next to the power-on button and reset button, the red buttons icon is a "can" or something.
When ever it would lock up, it'd go bright red until it stopped locking up.
This only really started when I installed Vista... >_<
So I turned on my PC this morning like I do everyone morning and my screen wouldn't turn on, well to be more exact...
My monitor with not cables going to my CPU, it says I need to connect them. It shows a brownish-orange light when something isn't right and a green light when it works perfectly and I get a picture on the monitor. I at first thought maybe something was wrong with the monitor or a cable came loose but I shortly after found out that my keyboard lights didn't blink when the computer was reset. (My keyboard is also a keyboard that has lights under the keys, they don't show now when I turn the PC on.)
The PC does turn on like normal, but my mouse and keyboard have no power to them, same with my monitor so I think it's the monitor.
When I turn on my PC, the red light goes solid red for a few seconds, then it goes black again, same goes for when I hold the power-on button for five seconds. When I open my disc drive and close it, it seems like it resets the PC altogether.
I believe the motherboard is fried but I don't know, any idea guy?
