Okay, I booted up my pc on Sunday the scorcher, and as it was firing up would keep turning my monitor off! I got hold of another monitor and it did the same thing. Took the pc into the local shop where I purchased it from and it turns out the processor and motherboard have gone! Now I am up for $400+ that I didn't budget for around christmas time :evil: The worst thing about it is that it is 14 months old, so two months out of warranty :evil: I also had the burner replaced 2 weeks after purchase. My neighbour has been so kind to let me use their laptop though, so I can still satisfy my Netrider addiction :wink: End of whinge!
