Okay so a few weeks ago I started using my HDTV as one of my monitors on my GTX 285 graphics card. Then one morining I put the system to sleep woke up to turn it on. All of a sudden a fan (which I am almost 100% sure is the GPU's) is loud. I think it's spinning at 100%, the thing is it won't die down. The other problem is I have no monitor images. I mean I tried using just my 20" monitors, my tv, using both pots, only 1 screen, and I get nothing on them (I mean they are not recieving signal). Well this has happened a few more times sometimes out of sleep and then a few times on boot up. I have noticed that if I turn the computer off and unplug the power stip it's hooked to (for lightning storms) and try turning it back on it seems to do this (happened once for sure and twice if i recall right). I have learned that one way I could fix this was shut down the computer (force shut down). Then turn off the PSU, and unplug it. thenplug it back in and turn on the PSU and I am in business (i tested this one time when I did 3 restarts after force shut downs cause of no image)(also I am getting green lights on the videocard and all the other components seems to sart up fine)
BUt now their is anotehr problem. It did it again today from sleep so I forced shut it down did the whole PSU thing, and when I went to turn it on I had to hold the power button for a few seconds or else my computer would just abort the start up, all the case lights would go dead, ext. I have a 1000W PSU (Ultra) and have swapped it out with another model, after swapping it out i still did the power issue until I held the button, this is the only time it has done this.) All I can think is since the monitor didn't work I tried putting it back into sleep, then gave up and force shut it down, but the thing was when I finlly got it worksing it gave me a "resuming windows" instead of "starting windows" splash screen. I am confused I have no clue what to do.
Thanks in advance
