I know there are a heck of a lot of threads about this kind of thing, but I can't find anything that has helped me at all. ):
So, here's the deal:
I was playing Dawn of War the other day on my Dell Inspirion 1410 and all of a sudden, the famous blue screen of death came up on me. I couldn't read it because the text was all scrambled, and it shut off shortly afterward. I tried restarting it then and there - the power LED's stay on, but the monitor just remains black.
So, I left it on when I went to work, came back eight hours later and the screen was still black. However, I restarted it once more and it actually came up with the screen asking if I wanted to restart Normally or Fix the Startup problems. I tried the second option, but it did nothing, so I restarted again and chose to start it up normally. This worked just fine, and I was able to run windows normally for a while.
One day afterward, I happened to be playing another game and it crashed again. Now it won't give me the startup options or anything, just the LED's and a black screen.
I've never had any problems with this computer before this, so what exactly is happening and what can I do to fix it?
Edit: I have already re-seated the memory, and that didn't do anything.
Thanks in advance,
