I have a somewhat strange problem with my computer. Yesterday, after I did a simple reboot to change the OS, my monitor suddenly stopped getting signals from my computer. The usual first thought was "that's it, the card is gone". Except for the monitor all other parts of the computer seemed to work fine: I was able to hear the startup sound of the OS.
After some searching over the internet, I tried to stop doing cold boots like an idiot, and gave my computer 30 second time for 'freeing it's electrons'. Then.... It worked again! I thought that it was just some small mistake in my computer and that it wouldn't happen again. Thought wrong.
Today: it worked fine in the morning - like usual. Some hours in the past from now on, when I came back from the university, I tried to turn it on again. The same thing happened like yeasterday: the monitor won't go on.
I've gave now my computer several times a couple of minutes to rest and rebooted it over 20 times, but nothing works now.
About my computer specificiations: I dont have them in my head nor are they written anywhere (except in the hdd of the computer). I think it's Geforce 9800GT, Intel Core 2 Quad 2.3 GHz, 4 GB RAM, some Gigabyte Motherboard, 500W power suply.
For me this is a strange problem, because it actually worked again. In the other case I would be sure that something is fried inside. Anyone got some experience with similar problems ? For me, this is a desperate situation, snce I'm not a guru with the insides of a computer.
Thanks for any replies.
