Typically the first time I power the computer up, the fans will kick on and lights on the tower work, but keyboard, mouse, and monitor (no picture) do not work. So I have to do a hard restart until they power up, normally on second or third try. already used different keyboard/mouse and same thing. Fan seems to be extra loud since the accident, and they seem to be kicking on and off more frequently.
I took the case apart and clean up all the dust bunnies and looked for any loose wires ect. or anything that looked out of place, not too good with computers at all. But a friend of mine said it could be the mother board going out and said I should replace it. So with all that being said, what would a good upgrade from my current mother board? I already ordered more ram to expand it to 4gig so i really would like to use my computer to the fullest potential.
