The other day, my son said he heard popping sounds coming from the wall socket where his computer was plugged in. Since then his monitor screen has been blank and the power light is yellow. I thought he may have blown a fuse within the monitor. When I unplug the monitor from the video card I get the "no signal" screen on the monitor, so I am assuming it's not the monitor but maybe now the video card.
But then I discover on the tower that both the power light and the reset light are on solid, and when I try to use either of them to either reset of power the computer down they do not work. The only way I can turn the computer off is by unplugging it.
So what's going on experts?
