ok, so grab your coffee and come let me tell you what happened. - had a friend build me a great computer... worked fine up until today, and ive had it for 5 months... I was playing some WoW (let the nerd bash begin), when i had a fatal wow error that booted me from the game... meh, w/e i restarted WoW, kept playin for about a 1/2 hour, when it did it again, and stated it couldnt read some image file... meh, w/e tryed to restart WoW... now it gets interesting.... when i attempted to restart WoW the entire system crashed, and acted like i had hit the reset button... computer booted, monitor shut down..upon rebooting the comp went to win xp loading screen then had a validation error... i pwrd the computer down with a hard shutdown. let it sit about 20 minutes, rebooted several times with win xp gettin stuk on the loadin screen, with the bar at bottom, then would randomly reset itself, reboot, get hung on the xp loadin screen again and auto reboot itself( never seen it do that before ever)... so, i reset checked some temp stuff in bios... exited w/o saving, went to reboot, now it popd up w/ mem check and everything usual, then just went to a black screen...so, i rebooted again, prayin that this problem would go away, and well, it got worse... i hit the reset button, and the box, lights up like usual all fans run that should, all is well, but i no longer see the mem check, no Del for bios, NOTHING. at. all. just a blak screen... i tried, unplugin and lettin sit, nothing... the problem progressively got worse, over the course of about 20mins... til finally nothing.. i dont claim to know much about computers, altho ive tinkered with them tons.. but this.. this has me stumped... im reaching out to any and all help i can find, for any advice or workarounds anyone can provide...
the only thing i changed from the way it was delivered was replaced the 2 sticks of ram it came with, w/ 4 sticks.. and that was 2 weeks ago.. there was also a update d/l and installed and reset prior to the start of my gaming..
sorry to ramble.. just tryin to give as much info as possible.... any help would be appreciated... thanks all in advance!
