PC frozen with black screen.

cruffin
e-machines pc has recently started going into what appears to be hibernation mode but is actually 'frozen.' Screen is blank, NumLock and CapsLock respond, case light is amber. Power off/on is required. Malware, spyware, virus scan show no problems. Any thoughts?

    I would hazard a guess that the PS is on it's way out and needs replacing with a decent one.

    If it is still Under Guarantee by all means get in contact with the supplier but I personally wouldn't be using one of their Power Supplies.

    If it's not UG you can fit any after Marker one but I would recommend a Name Brand like Antec which provide Superior protection tot he internals of the case. You can use the PS Adviser to work out what size PS you need
