While I was watching Family Guy on Hulu and browsing Digg, my computer made a static noise and froze. Within seconds the screen goes blank and the monitor power light starts blinking indicating it's standby mode. So I first tried shutting down the computer with my keyboard and got no responses so I finally shut it down by holding down the power button. Now when I turn on the computer, montior goes straight into standby mode and I don't hear the computer bootup pass POST. I also have performed a CMOS reset, booting comp without harddrive, reseating my RAM and GPU, and plugging my VGA into the motherboard instead of the GPU. I don't want to assume a short circuit of some sort / hardware failure or else it would be the end of the world for me right now because I just started school and taking more than my usual amount of courses. Thanks!
