Before I ask my question, may I please just get it out there that I know nothing about computers? I'm really a computer idiot, and so, please try to take that into consideration. :D
Okay, so, my monitor says 'No Input Signal'. I've checked to make sure that it's plugged in properly, and even plugged it into my laptop to see if there was a problem with the cable or even the monitor itself, and it works fine. I've figured as much that there's something wrong with the connection inside the tower, but the problem is I don't know what. I've tried giving everything that looks like a plug a push to make sure that nothing is loose, but still, 'No Input Signal'.
I've recently been downloading a lot of things onto my desktop, and that has been slowing down my computer quite a bit. Also, whenever I open Windows Explorer, it crashes and tells me something along the lines of 'Problem encountered. Windows Explorer was closed down to avoid losing information.' etc. I figured that that has something to do with how I changed the default location of My Documents (and everything in it) and also the Desktop to a different drive. But the problem had never been major enough to shut my computer off completely.
Also, just before my monitor stopped showing anything, I had been attempting to turn on my computer, only to have it freeze completely after BitComet tells me that it's not running properly and has to shut down.
I'm not so sure what has happened, and am afraid that something had burned out in the tower. So. Help?
