|Hello, my pc has just recently started giving |
me many troubles and now doesnt boot at all.
I will tell you the build up to this.
First started with windows not booting always,
getting a very long hangs after loading or just
getting stuck while booting, which forced me
to restart the pc (note it did work
sometimes).Then later on during the same
week while i was playing CoD4 online, my
case made a pretty bad sound, as if it was
hitting against something. My frames droped
from a steady 40+ to 18 and then it would
freeze for a few seconds and give me the Blue
Screen (bsod i think they call it). Not being
clever with a pc, i decided to just restart the pc
and it worked!, so started again with CoD4 and
again the blue screen after a hard thump
sound in the case. After this second time i
decided to leave the pc off. Next day i tried it,
got hangs at windows loading but got in to the
desktop after time and ran a virus scan with
AVG and it came clean. Next day i try to start
the pc and it wont boot at all, but fans are
spinning, lights are on but no beep and
nothing on the screen. Day after that and the
pc won't start at all, no fan, no beep, nothing.
this leads me to think its either the PSU ,GPU
or it could be my faulty wall plug (highly
unlikely that its the wall plug since my phone
still charges from it). What do you guys think?
cause im planning on getting another PSU.
Note that this pc is old, could be 3-4 years
old. Was running on windows XP 32-bit
