I was running a registry cleaning program when the pc froze up. I powered down the system and tried to reboot. It won't boot up, and all I hear is this clicking noise, I think from the cd player, like it's trying to load something but can't. I'm running Vista 64-bit. Is it a motherboard, graphics card, or Vista?
It's the AML SOFT free registry cleaner. The light on the CD player keeps flickering on and off, and the device makes a clear clicking sound as though it's trying to engage or load, and that's the extent of it. The monitor does not turn on or respond at all, and Vista doesn't even begin to load.
