2 Alienware Computers...Same Problem
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Both systems are beyond warranty.
Both have shut down in the middle of playing World of Warcraft and refuse to turn back on (two different occasions, within 1 month of each other). I can push the power button on the front of the PC and I get an LED light but nothing else. No fans, no beeps, nothing but a little green LED light. In order to turn the light back off I must press and hold the power button to get the computers to shut back down.
I admit that I don't know much about computers, but we've tried to replace the power supply in one of them and nothing. Can a video card overheating cause the entire system to crash and not respond?
