This is related to prior thread of mine http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/572878/my-computer-just-died-on-me/, I thought a more precise topic might get better results. As it turns out neither my Mobo, or my PSU had failed.
In short, my desktop PC crashes occasionally, and then will not start up again- DVD writer spins up and Hard drive activity indicator come on, but fans don't spin and there is no output to monitor - nothing which indicates the PC is actually booting.
It crashed twice today when I attempted to play Diablo3 (both times I attempted to start the game, my PC died). I have played that game and other graphics-heavy games before, without incident.
I have discovered by trial and error, that disconnecting my monitor - and of course reconnecting it again afterwards- allows my PC to boot up again normally.
Anyone know what is going on with my PC? - I would like to be able to prevent it from crashing in the first place.
