Tux Machines (TM)-specific
Well, I hoped the hardware issue of earlier was just a scare, but apparently not. Now my machine locked up while idling. What do you think, motherboard?
I do not know exactly what happened. The cable guy was in here yanking cables about and something happened. All I know was that the computer was off when I came in behind him and it would not turn back on.
Some of leds came on and case fans came on, but no motherboard lights and no beeps and well, not much else.
So, I hoped I could clean it up and reseat cards, but it still would not come back on. Until I gave up and let it sit for an hour or so. Then it fired back up.
Buut, I came back in here after hoping the news feeds pulled in and everything was locked up. It restarted, but this is the beginning of the end of something.
If you had to guess, what does this sound like to you? Video card? Motherboard?
