System is Compaq Presario 7000, P4, 256MB RAM, running ME. Did a complete system restore after numerous problems, (error messages, corrupt files, etc). Restore was successful. Have had recouring problem with getting kicked out of games. Game will simply stop and kick me out to Windows. Last night was downloading files (16MB) and while waiting was gaming. Game kicked me out, but monitor went blank, and all lights on the keyboard are off. Tried rebooting, unplugging everything and reconnecting, etc. When rebooting monitor goes into self test and says the monitor is fine, check the video cable or computer. Have power to the PC, but when rebooting don't get any beeps. I know it was stupid to be gaming and downloading at the same time. My question is will the problem be fixed by simply restoring the system again? Will the CD activate if the system isn't booting correctly?
