No problem with the RAM whatsoever, everything was always perfect (just mentioning recent changes in case that they are useful).
The only difference with what was my pc before the format is that it was getting into sleep mode when it was on for too long and idle. No problems so far.
Today after a large break i took i came back to my pc and the screen was showing the message it gets when it is not plugged in to the pc... I could hear my pc working though, so i thought maybe it was a stage before sleeping mode or something, that i didnt know it could do since im not so informed on the matter.. I tried clicking the mouse or typing, but nothing happened.
I thought it was the screen or maybe my mouse was dead, but both were plugged in just fine, and when i tried to plug a different mouse in a usb i could see no lights on it whatsoever, then realised my wifi receiver had no light on it either. I pressed the power button cuz i thought windows were fully functional behind the messed up screen, nothing happened.
Then the reset button but that did nothing either ( i have never seen a reset button do nothing before so i got even more worried). I kept the power button pressed to close the pc, rebooted, no bios no nothing though i could hear the pc working... then changed the screen cable and opened the computer again. It showed me the bios, then said resuming windows (which was weird since i had it unplugged to put the new cable on, does it keep data like that?), and then the screen got black (like when it gets to sleep mode again).
It got unresponsive for a while again, even with the power button and i rebooted again.. For now it works correctly but i am worried that either something is up with the hardware (as a total hardware-newbie) or its just the heat... Can the heat freeze the pc that badly that it cant even get the basic commands that a reset button sends?
I saw a guy here use speccy to send you his info so i will do the same for more information on the system:
512MB GeForce 8600 GT (ASUStek Computer Inc): 84 °C <------ is that even normal??
P.S.: Thank you for your help, i would really appreciate it if you could also explain the problem to me since i also want to learn out of it ^^ Since the pc now works ok its not a life and death matter (for now) i just want to avoid getting it again.
