    Hi,

    I am having a problem with my PC, which is running Win 2000.

    I think my PSU had a loose connection, as if my knee ever knocked the tower it would restart. One evening the computer wouldn't boot, the light was on but nothing happened and there was no beep, which signals the PC starting up. In short, I damaged the PSU further trying to get the computer to start. I have since replaced the PSU with a higher watt and it booted up and it seemed ok for a day or two. However, after Call of Duty crashed, it has just died again and wouldn't boot up at all.

    I'm very worried that the PC could die on me permanently and would like to try and identify the problem. Here are the things that I think might be causing it:

    1) Linked to Call of Duty crashing?
    2) Device manager is showing that Multimedia Video Controller driver is unknown
    3) Hard drive failure
    4) Bad memory stick
