So my husband's computer won't turn on. He plays games like America's Army, and has been having some issues recently. First it was crashing and giving him the BSOD when he tried to play. Then he wiped everything, reinstalled the OS and it was ok for a while. The last couple days he'd be in the middle of playing and he'd get a blank blue screen and the computer would shut off. It always booted up again, though.
Just now the screen went gray (it was on, but blank) and made a weird whirring noise. So he shut it off and tried to boot up again. But now it doesn't boot up. It turns on, the fans go, and the screen comes on. It shows the ASUS logo, then a windows thing comes up saying there's an error and it will try to restore to a previous version... then the ASUS logo again and a blank screen.
Can't actually get any files off of it that might help you guys... but this is the computer: http://www.asus.com/Tower-PCs/CG8270/
Still running windows 8 as far as I know. Never upgraded to 8.1, even.
