Yeah, so a few months ago I was dusting the inside of my tower, and when I was done cleaning it, I picked it up, and dropped it on its corner by the disk drive. I plugged it back in only to notice that the monitor had some very light flickering. As the days went on, the flickering got worse and worse until the pc would freeze and restart. I got so tired of it that I left it alone for a few weeks.Then one day, I decided to turn it on, and it wouldnt go past the Start up screen (Where it says, Press ESC, F8, F11, whatever, etc...) I cant press any key without it working, It just stays frozen on that screen, I cant Restore or anything because its frozen when it starts up so of course it has to be something wrong internally.
My question is...What could it be? And is there a way to troubleshoot or get it to start back up again?I'm pretty computer illiterate so I dont know much about the internals, all Ive done is change the Power supply and add more RAM but other than that, Im dumb. I dont have the cash atm to replace a motherboard if thats what it is, but I need to know whats wrong so I can start saving up -___- HIT ME WITH YOUR WORST
PC - HP Pavilion m7480n, Media Center edition
EDIT- I also just got done disconnecting and reconnecting all the wires internally and...nothing. Still frozen at boot up, cant do system restore, safe mode, etc.
