For that past few days my PC has been randomly stopping. No error or freeze up the screen will just go black(But I don't know if the PC is still running so I'm going to keep music on to see if it does or not). Now when I try to boot it up again after I turn it off, nothing happens same black screen so I turn it off and try again and again. Usually after like 10 times it boots normally. I think is my geforce 8500, but does any one know whats wrong? And how might I fix this.
OK that seemed to fix it booted normally on the first try. There was a lot of dust and I cleaned off the fans the best I could with my fingers but I'm going to got the BestBuy tomorrow and buy a can of compressed air and finish the job.
Oh God, It wont start up at all now (The fans kick on and there is a few bleeps and bloops but no picture). I tried unplugging every thing and even letting it sit for a few hours to cool down. So something is defiantly broken, my guess the video card because it was running so hot. Is there a way to test this and could I just go buy the same card (geforce 9500) and swap it out. Would that work or would there be a bunch of complicated stuff I would need to do.
