Was having a game of dota, wc3, suddenly my computer froze and then when I looked at my box, all the lights were flashing like crazy.. The ethernet port, hard disk light, the fan light, the usb port light - basically everything that has light on my computer started flashing like crazy. I immediatelly tried to hold the power button for a few seconds(as i would normally do that to recover from a lock up) but it wouldnt turn off and I turned off the main power supply.
After that I turned it on and the same thing happened, and then a few times of this rubbish prompted me to wait a longer period - say 5 mins? And then it was back to normal.
After that all my usb ports wasnt working, i plugged in my stuff but it doesnt detect at all, yet I checked BIOS settings, toggled USB controller on and off but yet to no available.
Also 1 week before this occasionally I had problems booting up - i turn on the pc and nothing appears on the monitor. But the cdrom light flashes repeatedly, and after a few on and offs later on it finally manages to bootup and then says "DRAM timing set too tightly" and press any key to continue then Im on my way to windows again.
Anybody know what actually happened?
Edit: on a side note, I went to windows' device manager, and USB ports there are all stated as working properly. Just that when I plug devices in nothing happen at all.
