Default Power loss

Power went out in at my place, now my comp just freezes and the led light fades in and out. First I thought it was a windows problem so I restored, then I tried to repair windows. But now I cant finish the repair cause it just keeps locking up. "win xp"

Maybe one of your devices has been damaged when the power went out. If you can ever get spare parts just to check which part is defectif. Maybe its a hardware that went down or maybe not, maybe it's just a software problem... maybe just try to format it and not a repair. Maybe a full format would work.

Hope it's helps.

sounds like unfortunately something got fried. if your lucky its just the psu which would have saved most of your devices because its fused. i would check the psu first and then the motherboard
