Lately, my Media Center HP Pavilion m7390d PC freezes if its been on for more than 4 hours. (I use it mostly for uni assigments, no hardcore gaming). At times, the blue screen of death appears which leaves me no choice but to restart by holding the power button for a few secs, before pushing it again. The cpu turns on but the monitor doesn't. So,
I switch off the main power supply,
Disconnect/Reconnect the power cord from the cpu,
Unplug/Replug every other USB/power cable there is,
Turn the pc on again.
and all that happens is, the cpu fan makes a very very loud noise, nothing else responds. i repeat the steps a few times over but the same thing happens. I have to wait out a few hours if not a day for it to eventually work again.
Could this be a faulty PSU or motherboard? Please help! Thanks! (:

Hello omgitskimchi, The issue you describe seems to be a heat related issue.
Since the system was released 27-Feb-2006, it is very likely the system has become dirty/dusty since the release date.
I would disconnect the power cord, remove the case side panel, and clean the dust/dirt from the inside of the case, paying particular attention to the processor heatsink/fan assembly.
You may want to acquire some canned compressed air to remove the dust/dirt from the processor heatsink/fan assembly.
After you clean the inside of the case, reinstall the side panel and connect the power cable and see if the issue is resolved.
