screen hangs !
My desktop is misbehaving lately.
Yesterday when I turned on the machine and boot up a Linux OS,
I was able to work for barely 5 mins and out of a sudden the screen
froze. No key can wake the computer up.
I turned off the machine using the power button. On turning
on the machine the second time, the same thing happens. The screen
froze after a little while.
I do not think it has to do with OS, since when I tried to
boot to Windows
7, I cannot even get to the login screen where the computer hangs
at the progress indicator with a turning ring.
I turned off and tried to turn it on again, this time I cannot
even see the BIOS menu.
Another time I tried to turned it on, I believe the fan is turning really noisily
but nothing else happened.
This morning, I pressed the power botton and I was
able to boot up one Linux OS. I let googleearth run a while and sure
enough the screen froze again a few minutes later.
After that I cannot power up the machine again.
Question: What is wrong with the machine ? The Motherboard
or the RAM or anything else ?
Many thanks if you can share your opinions.
