    Default Computer Problem

    Out of nowhere my wireless mouse froze on my second monitor. About 10 seconds later, both monitors shut off. The cpu shows the power light is on and the fan is blowing.

    I tried rebooting and detaching the monitors and plugging back in. Same thing. Batteries should on mouse should be fine. It gives a blinking notification if running out.
    None of that fixed anything.

    When i hit the power button on the front of the cpu nothing happens.

    Any advice?

    This is not the place for that. You're well aware of where that material belongs.


    It's becoming clearer and clearer that I'm one of this guys favorite posters. Something in him won't let him admit it...

    Did the motherboard beep on reboot?

    Always make sure to dust your machine and the air vents with compressed air regularly. Dust build-up can cause interference in VGA signals/connections which can cause your monitors to not work.

    Jealous. That computer is literally better than anything you've ever owned, ESPECIALLY your synthetic penis manufacturing factory that you own. As for the guitar... I gave my love a cherry.

    Don't feel bad Jigo. Last night my video card just randomly crashed, was idling at like 50 degrees Celsius and all I was doing was streaming to my ps3. Screen went blank, lost my transparancy on my taskbar/top bar. Nothing identified as crashed. Nothing showed up in window event logs either. A reboot cleared it up and it hasn't acted up again though.

    Thank god for a 3 year warranty on this video card tho.
    Why am I not allowed to have a center?

    I'll piggy back here...

    My work laptop just contracted some Malware. Here is the write-up about it: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/viru...e-system-check

    Unfortunately, when I start in Safe Mode (per instructions half way down the window), there are still no programs - start menu is completely empty (except Log Off and Shut Down).

    Any ideas on how to fix? I'm planning on dealing with my IT dept in the morning, but I'm remote (work out of home). So I can't just drop it off and let them deal with it.
