Hello,the problem started the other night where i was playing a game. Anyhow  it just froze and the screen turned to a different colour, this happened every time i played any game ( even on windows media player). I just thought the problem would fix itself, as the computer i got is fairly new (7 months). The next day it froze again and had to turn it off via power point, but now it wont even turn on. It goes past the windows loading the screen then freezes on  a dark brown. Havent really tried anything as i havent had a computer lately. any suggestions on if it could be a virus or a hard ware problem

 

Specs: GTX660

CPU: 3.6ghz quad core intel

some asus mo board

700w power supply

32bit windows 7

 

(cant remember other stuff)

 

If i psted this in the wrong section sorry as i couldn't find a proper one.

 

Any suggestions would be Great cheers

I have no wish to steal the Godfather's thunder, but this computer is only 7 months old !  I don't know where Frils123 lives, but here, in the UK, I would be jumping up and down in front of my supplier and claiming a replacement / repair under warranty.

 

I know that law and custom vary dramatically from one country to another, but that would be my first action with so new a computer. In fact, repairing it yourself - especially should it involve opening the case - might well invalidate any warranty you may have.
