Specs: Windows xp
I was away on vacation when my gf was on my
computer. she said it started to freeze up then just
froze, she had to disconnect the power plug and it
wont boot up.does not even show bios.when i turn on
the power all the led's light up n the fans start moving
but nothing comes up on the monitor i tried a different
gfx card and no luck.I was wondering could it be my
motherboard or cpu.i had installed a after market cpu
fan and noticed recently it had started spinning harder
by it self.
