I was downloading some torrent with which I left the computer itself for about 1 hour and then probably monitor went in to screen saver mode but somehow when I came back.
I tried moving the mouse hitting keys on keyboards it didn't come back to my desktop. All I see black screen.
Monitor light was on harddisk was working because I can see the network lights at the back too I assume mobo was doing his job too I guess.
Now is this a normal issue?
I have 8800GTS 512 mb Gigabyte card
PSU Corsair 620W
4GB Ram dual channel ddr800
Graphic card was 63 degree at the time
mobo was 40
it seems normal but I had to restart the pc to get on to the XP
I tried to check cables both ends are tied up properly so from that point we are fine I guess.
I have an old PC that when I do anything HDD intensive by accident (swap file intensive?), it will take a long time -->Long time<-- like a half hour to come back to life, turn on and even then is very jerky.
or press power again
anyway I had a similar bug like this guy.. with a 2900XT
with certain drivers, windows XP will just FREEZE after it shutdown the monitor,making it impossible to "recover" from sleep mode.
so... had to hard-shutdown the computer with the power button.
only way to fix that was to change drivers.
