After working on project yesterday, I'm sure it is coincidence, buit as I went to click on "Save", the monitor displayed "monitor status no input signal" then went to sleep.
First thing I did was look at the on/off button on the front of the Tower and it was flashing faster than it has ever done.
As I was staring at the PC wondering what was going on, all the lights and sockets in the house stopped working. There was a power cut, this affected the whole street as it turns out.
When the power came back on, the on/off button was still flashing and as I turned the computer round to check cables were all as they should be I noticed that there was a green light flashing on the back of the PSU.
Apart from the two flashing lights, there are no further signs of life. No fans, no beeps, nothing. When I hit the standby button on the monitor I just get that same message "monitor status no input signal" and the monitor goes to sleep again.
Looking at old messages on here, I think it might be a PSU issue, but am looking for some advice. Is it a power problem or, as I first thought a virus that has caused my computer to stop responding?
