I was working on my computer a few months ago and stupidly left the power plugged in when I was installing my video card. I saw a small spark...
The fan doesn't spin when I play a video game, unless I push it manually, and then it will spin up and play fine without over heating.
The main problem is it will randomly crash if I'm not playing a game.
I'm sure the problem would be solved with a new card, but I'm wondering if this might have caused a problem with the motherboard itself.
I know that isn't much to go on, but any insights would be helpful.
