my computer and i have been companions through a lot in the past 4 years and i have always managed to make it work. since buying it, i have only formatted it once and that was about a year and a half back.

hardware 8 gb ram
gts450 nvidia graphic card
amd phenom x6

so this is what happened,
i had left the computer on for abput 2 hours and had switched off the moniter. when i returned, the diplay didnt work. i thought it must be a problem with the connecteing cord so i tried to shake it. when nothing worked, i turned the whole system offf the main electricity cord. after some time,
it was a slow start but it worked, later blue scren appeared and said windows did so to prevent damage to files and restarted.
once that happened, my pc said something about lack of external memory as windows cannot be booted.

whenever i have tried, same has happened. fan andights areworking. but nothing appears.

Please...be exact when reporting error messages.  They are important clues, which...if not properly reported...lead down the wrong path.

 

System manufacture and model...or motherboard manufacturer and model?

Lack of external memory? Does it mean the system drive is not enough?

Are you saying that this only happened one time...that you cannot duplicate the error message on your system?

 

Can you boot into safe mode?  Does the message appear when booting into safe mode?

the message did not appear second time, in fact nothing did.
i started cleaning and removing each component of my pc individually to see where the problem was.
when i removed the graphic card and run the pc, it worked normally.
the funnier thing was that after cleaning, the graphic card worked as well.
i guess that error had no link to the blank screen.

nothing was visible so i couldnt boot or anything. the pc has been working 4 hours straight without any errors.
i feel that there was something wrong when the error came but cleaning seemed to solve it
