HP desktop XP Media Center, SP3,
Had my desktop go down a few weeks ago, got it to restore to a day a week earlier. It ran fine for a week or two then it shut down again, i had to reboot in safe mode and it was working fine, was using it that way for a few weeks and the the other day while watching a youtube video it just froze up again.The power stayed on and the tower button stayed lit normally but the screen went to a colored vertical stripped wallpaper type screen back round. Nothing would get it out of this mode such as esc,ctrl-alt-del, held power button in. Since none of them worked I unplugged and when i plugged it back in and use the power button to turn it on it just runs the main case fan at high speed and nothing comes to life. The power button does not let it shutdown, i have to unplug it to do that.
Any suggestions ???????????????
