After installing Neverwinter Nights (from a DVD image with Deamon Tools, incedentaly) i started the game, but had no sound. Exiting the program, i found that nothing else would make any sound. Trying to start WMP netted me an "Internal application error" message. I tried various methods for solving this issue found online, but nothing seemed to work. The next day, my computer froze while i was using it, though it worked on a restart, i continued looking for a solution to no avail, and on the third day, my computer would no longer start.
When trying to start it, all i recieved was a rapid-fire beeping sound. I was advised to reset the BIOS by a friend, so i did, following the guide on this forum. Now it makes a different sound when i attempt to start up (beeps of about 8 sec in length, with an interval of about 4~5 sec in between) but it still doesn't display anything on the screen.
I'm afraid something hard-ware related has died or shorted out, as the USB mouse that was plugged into it when it died doesn't work when i plug it into my laptop (doesn't even find the device). Not sure what steps to take at this point... Any insight into my problem would be greatly appreciated.
