Question

Yes Im running windows xp on a p4 1.8 512 rdram,

the problem im having lately is that some time the computer wont boot up the next day when i try to use it when the night before i shut down right.

I push the power button and the computer turn on but no video is on the screen and the light on the front of the tower blinks from green to orange. there is no beeping noise it just makes a sound like its trying to start. the cd rom lights blink and the key board lights blinks but no video.

so when i push the power button to turn it off then back on the light stays green but the cpu fan is no longer turning like its off.

so when i unplug the computer and the light on the mother board goes off then i plug it back in and push the power button again it blinks from orange to green and again no video
