I have a Carrera desktop system, new in Nov 2004. From memory specs are;
Intel 4 3.2
128mb ddr ram
Nvidia graphics card
Sorry I can't give any more detailed info than that, but my PC won't start!
For a while now I've had a noisy fan, and when I used the cpu temp utility it returned a reading of 99C! (I've been told a temp this high is unlikely).
I was having some start up problems, sometimes I would have to restart after getting the blue screen of death (can't remember the err msg). Now the [bleep] thing won't start at all.
Power is okay, it goes thro' the beginning of start-up, says something like "checking memory press esc to stop" (the same end result happens regardless of whether I wait for memory check or esc out of it) it then scrolls thro' stuff until it gets to something like "verifying DMI pool data" then cuts power and dies. I don't get the chance to start in safe mode or any of that good stuff.
All suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
