  1. Hi all,

    I wonder if anyone could help with an issue I have with my pc. I was playing a game, the screen went white and it started to hang. I quit out using task manager, tried to reopen and it wouldn't. I restarted using the start menu, it rebooted fine but would not boot the game. So I hit the reset button on the case and the pc switche itself off instantly, like it had overheated. At this point the wheel on my razer mouse started flashing and the pc won't power back on.

    I allowed it to cool down, took out the gfx card, ram and all peripherals but not change. On plugging the mouse back in, it starts flashing again and is still going now. Does this sound like a fried motherboard? The fact the mouse is still flashing makes me think the psu is ok, but I can't be sure.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
