Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I was putting my pc on some wood to elevate it from the carpet and the legs of my pc slipped off and the case hit the wood. My my screen and mouse froze and my keyboard turned off. I restarted and everything works as it should again. Should i be concerned?

No, probably the PCIe slot lost connection and it froze

I wouldn't be concerned, but it wouldn't be a waste to just open the case and gently push against the video card. Just to make sure its seated properly.

as other have mentioned, u can open up your case to inspect your pcie slots for any visible damage

 

what im more concerned about is your mechanical hard disk, if you have one

use a tool such as crystaldiskinfo to check for any errors and such

sudden change in acceleration (aka vibration or shocks) can damage a hard disk internals
