I normally hate to bother the fine people of the forum with my problems, but today I'm a bit at my wit's end, and kinda hoped that someone has ever had a similar problem to mine and can suggest a solution.
So I came back from a six months exchange study program, super happy to go back home to my own desktop... and when I turn it on, it doesn't work. The screen starts, and the checkup the system runs on startup starts... but stops after the processor and the next line (the one that starts CPUID). And... that's it. It does nothing else. The keyboard doesn't respond to attempts to go into BIOS setup or boot menu, and the system just stays there forever.
I've been trying to move RAM sticks around to see if one of them was causing an error, tried changing the connections of the hard drive, even checking some of the power source cables to see if they were fastened correctly, which is pretty much code for "I have no idea what is going on".
Basically, I have no idea what is going on. Does anyone have any ideas as to what this could
even be caused by?
