#1: PC Down Author: nuccia, Location: Toronto, Ontario, CanadaPosted: Fri Oct 21, 2011 2:32 am ---- Well I did it again - I "blew up" another computer. It made some strange noise and now I get nothing on the screen. It began acting up after I powered off and rebooted this morning. The fans are running, and the green light on the monitor turns on then blinks amber. I see the screen on and off for a few minutes and then total darkness.
Any idea of what this could be? I have a back up drive but I still need the files of this PC as it holds quite a bit of my info so I hope someone can offer me some ideas here.
Oh, it's an Acer desktop i that helps.

I'm so glad it worked out and that it was just the monitor, but sorry that you lost a monitor. Computer problems almost always result in panic for me!
