When I came home I turned it on and booted it up .. or at least tried ... I got as far as the login screen and when I tried to put in my password .. hitting 1 letter already filled the whole line with asterisks..

So since I was unable to login I logged into another account that was not administrative and had no password. I got to the Windows loading screen and the Win7 logo was flashing super fast instead of its normal slow fade in and out pattern. Also I noticed the green circle "wait" mouse pointer was spinning real fast instead of its slow normal rotation.

I tool note of all these things. I tried to reboot into safemode but then I couldn't use the mouse or keyboard. I plugged a spare keyboard into the PS2 port with an adapter and started it up again .. and it did not recognize that .. I have still not been able to get into Windows .. After 4 tries I gave up not knowing what
do.

I talked to a friend on Skype and he said it sounds like it fried and that I am screwed. And that a short could have traveled through the Ethernet Cable or the speakers..

I am open to things to try ..

 

I am posting this from a really slow Aspire ONE netbook with 1 Gb of ram .. and a page with too many images gets it to come to a stand still .. I want my gaming rig back but .. I think it is fried .. so for now I am stuck with this netbook. Help? What happened??

No that isn't it. But I do realize I forgot to mention that The building I live in was working on the power (turned it off and put in a new main cercuit breaker in the main floor on this apartment building). I had turned my computer off as well as I have a back up power supply (UPS). I did not turn off the switch in the back of the computer case power supply unit and I also did not have the ethernet cable through the UPS.  I came home and turned it on and that is when I discovered everything was messed up even though they were done working on the electricity for 3 hours before I came home.

You could rule out hardware issues like non-funtioning keyboard and mouse, Ethernet also, by downloading a small Linux distro like Puppy. Download the 5.2.8 iso and burn a CD, If you cannot do that, you can use Rufus to create a bootable USB flash drive. Boot the CD or Flash drive and if you can access the internet via Ethernet or Wireless and use your keyboard/mouse, your Windows 7 is corrupted.

 I had a similar problem with a desktop PC just a few days ago.  I bought a cheap USB keyboard for $4 and swapped it with the old one.  Voila, problem solved.  YMMV, but it's certainly worth $4 to see.

 

Good luck.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

You may have a stuck key on the keyboard. I recommend unplugging all usb devices and plug in a different keyboard as a first test.


If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.

Well having it off for 2 days my friend finally came over who works on my computer (he has had no official schooling but just self-taught so I like to ask others for advice on here). I turned it on to show him and it was not doing what it had done previously. Everything seems back to normal except somethings were screwed up that I was able to fix. Nothing major so far. Still going to upgrade with what my friend has offered me though.

 

Did a new benchmark test and the comparison .. is it normal to have this much of a difference or does it have to do with what ever happened to my computer a few days ago? And also, no, nothing was on the keyboard, and I am currently using the same keyboard and mouse.  Only thing different is I had the power off on the back of the PSU for a couple days since I assumed the computer was done for.

I have already checked my main HDD using these 2 methods: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/check-a-drive-for-errors and http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833

To be quite honest...after playing with it a couple of days last week...I'm not convinced at all that the PassMark data means anything of any consequence.  It gave this system a pretty low rating that seemed based on the optical drive...I'd look at the CPU tab, the RAM tab...and pretty much trash their "overall rating" data.

 

If you CPU tab and your RAM tab look as you would expect, I would not rely on the overall scrore for anything.

Thanks Louis. :) My friend who built my computer is the one who goes by it very strongly. It was based on the CPU score that he decided that my 8650 Triple Core would be DOUBLE as fast if I upgraded to Q9550 Quad Core, while my ex-fiance says that it would just be a small upgrade.

 

I did test the harddrive and it seems that there are no bad sectors.

 

I also ran this other test:

http://www.hddstatus.com/hdrepshowreport.php?ReportCode=8109946&ReportVerification=E15D5519

 

I am back to typing on it but it seems the front intake fan is dead according to him but he doesn't know the size. I did my own research without taking the case apart and I think it is a 120mm and not an 80mm like the side fan is.  The temps are hot so I also want to get a fan for the back of the case which the case supports both 120mm and 80mm for there

 

I looked and looked and found my case finally here:

''OGRE Xtreme'' Nikao Case

 

ogresl%28240x320%29.jpg12403_Drive_Bay.jpg

 

I cannot game on it for now until the fans are in as I don't want to risk overheating even though I did speed up the GPU fan speed from 75% to 95%.

FWIW:  The standard way of marking PC temperatures is in Celsius...I see that some of your charts (Speed Fan) are in Fahrenheit, so I would adjust the way those programs report the temperatures.  You may be comparing apples to oranges.

 

The 80mm fans are the smallest, you should be able to look at the fan and place for it...and determine whether you need an 80mm or 120mm.  Whichever, be sure to install the front fan so that it blows into the case, not out.  Generally, higher/rear fans should blow out, while lower/front fans blow inward, facilitatiing removal of hot air.

I didn't know that back fan part. Thanks.
