Hiya, this morning on turning on my power switch at the wall our desktop sprang into life (its connected through an extension socket to the main power switch at the wall but usually you have to push the pc's switch on too, I cheated last night and just turned the main power switch off Anyway, pc sprang into life (as if it hadn't been shut down properly which it obviously hadn't :( ), the light around the start button was madly flashing, the lights on the keyboard were madly flashing, the monitor which was on was also madly flashing (blank but as if trying to display something, the cd/dvd roms drawers wont open and I cannot access anything at all.
Could it be a virus? I've ruined something by not shutting down? Is there anything I can try?
Its making an odd noise too as if constantly crashing without getting chance to load anything up at all......fan is whirring away.
Nothing! Only way to turn pc on or off at moment is through main power socket! Its just on and whizzing! Light around power button is just whirring round instead of static as it usually is. And cannot open any drawers to insert xp disk to try doing a repair as someone has already advised elsewhere. Its completely locked up though it hasn't loaded anything!
