This is the big one - my computer just died on me. I was playing an old game when it suddenly froze. The image was frozen on the screen, there seemed to be some BUS activity (the 'HD' light was flashing), but the computer did not respond to anything I tried. after I hit 'reset' the screen remained blank though the computer seemed to turn on - like there was no signal coming from the computer. The screen itself seems to work well - I get the Samsung logo when I turn it on, before it goes blank and into waiting mode.
No beeps are coming from the computer when I try turning it on.
I have a Gigabyte mobo & graphics card, and I'm guessing it's one of them. I will prolly be able to get a g. card to replace mine, to test if that's the problem. I'm posting here because I'm not sure my checklist is correct/full:
1) Open the box, disconnect all DVD drives, peripherals other than mouse & keyboard; examine parts for signs of damage.
2) Try replacing the G. card.
Not exactly sure what next...
