Man, I dunno what's wrong with my current system. I went away for 10 days, came back and turned on my pc. It ran for about an hour then froze. I found that strange since I run vista for weeks on end without restarting and it never slows and certainly never freezes. Since the system was totally non responsive I had to do a hard restart with the reset button on the case. The first message I saw after the reset on the screen was 'writing bios to harddisk'. Then vista booted up fine and ran for another two hours. Then it froze again, no matter what I do now it won't boot. The USB mouse and keyboard don't work, no power is comming to them, the lcd goes into standby mode as if the pc is turned off. The power supply is fine because all three dvd drives open and close and hard drives spin. It seems to be a motherboard thing.
What could be happening ??
