Computer won't post, no windows screen just all black.
Ok any help would be appreciated on this. I recently (5 months ago) built my third computer, and until recently had no problems. I was playing fallout 3 and my computer locks up and I have to manually turn it off (ctrl-alt-del does nothing).
I try and turn it on again and all I get is a black screen, no windows screen at all(fans and dvd drive still spins). The next day I turn on my computer again and it actually comes on, I check out a few websites and go upstairs to get some coffee. When I return the screen is black and does not respond to anything. From this point on all I get is a black screen (fans and dvd drive still spins) when I try to turn on my pc.
The computer is very new so i'm almost positive it's not my processor, I thought it may be my video card but i've ruled that out (it worked in another computer). I tried resetting my motherboard bios and a just got a popping noise when I turn it back on.
I bought a psu tester the other day and it indicates over voltage from my psu, which in turn makes me think that my power supply fried my mobo.
I really hope i'm wrong, any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
