Found 9th Jun 2010
hi, having problems booting a system, I was on youtube and the audio looped (could not ctrl, alt, del) and I had to turn system power off, on reboot the system would not display output to monitor, no HDD light (when I unplug DVD drive HDD access light is continously on), no post beeps, HDD gets warm but i'm not sure it's accessing, checked RAM - swapped out and tried all sticks, still no boot, removed clock battery and changed PSU, but no luck, graphics card seems okay but stays on hispeed fan mode, possible power fluctuation or mobo fault? hope you can help, ty!
