comment Very strange monitor problem (cannot describe in words!)
as I said the computer is in the loft, which is pretty cold at the moment. So, are you saying the HDMI port itself could be overheating? I only quoted my GPU (i made a typo, my GPU temp is 41C) and System temps as they're pretty low.

I don't think it's that. My CPU monitor is reading 41C and system temp is 32C. Interesting that someone else has seen it though.

@Arjan - i've tried to describe the effect, but it is pretty bizarre. I'm also in the process of uploading the video to youtube.

comment No DTS Audio output in Windows 7?
were you getting no audio at all, or chopped up audio? I've been having problems with my HDMI output and certain mkv files with DTS soundtracks producing chopped up sound

comment PC in POST loop
I did a CMOS reset, I then started getting useable BIOS beep codes, 3 then 8. I know 3 was memory problems, so I've pulled the 2nd pair of sticks out and it booted up. Now I can replace the memory and carry on. phew, finally!

comment PC in POST loop
Since "fixing" the PC by removing a faulty cable it has got worse. It now just says "Scanning BIOS Image in Hard Drive ...". I'm going to try a CMOS reset today, fingers crossed it works ....
