It started about a month ago. I usually have my computer running all day and night going on standby when idle. I noticed that my computer was turning off on its own. Several days later i am on the computer and my monitor blinks out and comes back with a blue screen saying:
"A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down...blah....blah..........
Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete"
First time i had seen it. then throughout the next few weeks it was doing the same thing from time to time.
When i restart the computer, usually it boots up fine. Sometimes during boot up it stops and reads:
following file is missing
and over time, occuring more frequently, when i turn my computer on it will not start. I see and hear all the fans working and dvd drives working, but my screen displays nothing. My computer wouldn't even beep.
I would resolve this by turning it off and back on. Now, since yesterday it will not start, no matter how many times i try.
This all started about a month ago. The only new things I have added in the past 2 months are a new Acer monitor and a Wacom Tablet.
I appreciate any help i can get since i need this computer for school.
I built the computer over 1.5 years ago. I use Windows XP SP2.
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 x2 2.2ghz
2GB DDR SDRAM
Asus ATX AMD Motherboard
Thx again for your help
