|So I hope you guys can help, in desperation mode here as I need my comp for nursing school...I have a Dell Dimension 2400, upgraded ram 2gb, and upgraded graphics card (EVGA e-GeForce 6200, ddr2, 256mb, pci.) It has been like this at least 2 years and has worked fine until friday...here's what happened.|
I was on the school website looking up class materials and info for lab when my screen suddenly froze. My mouse pointer wouldn't budge, any moving images, stopped, no keyboard, and if i moved the mouse or typed the computer tower would beep like crazy. THEN the screen went black for about 20 seconds...came back up for about 20 again and everything worked fine again for about 2 min before freezing again! Except this time instead of turning to a black screen , i get a “no signal“ message...and that is all i get even after restarting :(
Any ideas what is wrong?? I was thinking maybe the graphics card blew? Any and all help would be much appreciated as i've found here before! Sorry, for the novel, just trying to be as detailed as i can.
