HTPC Issue

Recommended Posts

ImTheTypeOfGuy

I was watching a movie on my HTPC and it just quit. Nothing I did would bring the movie back. So I rebooted the machine and it went into the BIOS. Would that indicate a hard drive issue? I indicate issue because after another reboot it started working again.

It could be a thousand things.  I'd look in the Event logs first and check all the physical connections.  First thing I would check would be a loose cable or CPU Cooler.

checking the disk may be a good idea, but I'm not as inclined to believe that's the issue.

 

A memory test is ALWAYS a good idea, especially when weird things happen.

And an extended test is better than the basic tests.

 

 

But yeah, checking the logs is the best starting place.

I concur with both observations. I think I would run memtest86 first.
