I switched on my PC today, and I got three loud beeps with a fair interval between each one (beep!~~~beep!~~~beep!)
The red light near the power button stayed on continuously, and didn't flicker like it usually would, and the monitor was blank. I couldn't get to the motherboard logo screen, Windows startup screen or desktop. Upon closer inspection, I don't think my graphics card (PCI express) was running. It's usually pretty loud. I left it like this for a while with no change in the situation. I tried the reboot button, tried powering off by holding in the power button. Nothing. I ended up pulling the power lead out.
I'm not sure, but I think this might be related to this issue: lately I bought a new power strip (I think it's called that) and plugged in several appliances. They operate off of switches. The thing is that they're those red glow in the dark kind switches that ended up keeping me awake at night seeing as my PC is never far from my bed. So I switched off the appliances at the plug including the PC, and all was fine for a couple of weeks until today, after I hadn't switched on the PC (at the plug) for two days.
Any idea on what I should do?
