Boot Fail during various stages of startup

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

I am experiencing boot failure by means instant power off at various stages (seemingly random) during the boot process of Windows 7. There is a brand newer PSU in the machine a Seasonic black (last 6 months).

I will give an account of my experiences:

I was using computer without problems, went out, came home to see that computer was off which is strange as I usually just let it go to sleep and double click it awake. Upon trying to start, after the 3 or 4th boot menu, instantaneous power down. Next time I tried accessing BIOS and right before it entered power down. Let it sit for a while, unplugged a loose Esata cable on the front I thought could be shorting and pulling to much power and I was able to boot to bios. Thinking all would be ok keeping that cable removed, I reboot only have it proceed farther past the 3/4th boot menu to the Windows install selection so I think I got it but as soon as I select the install and hit enter or let it select after the 5 seconds it falls to the ground.

Now I just got past the boot screen saying for me to go into startup repair but even then after a few moments, while it is still loading the system goes dead.

Please help me......

Any and all advice is much appreciated and will give you great karma to overclock faster and faster without problems. I will see to it with my cosmic powers

Cheers!
JB

Sounds like a possible hdd issue, the fact that it goes dead on clicking an install or when the pc is trying to load windows in my mind points to this, or possible memory problems but i also have ocz and have never had trouble with my last two rigs.

Have you adjusted any of the bios features atall?

Nope, no changes. Thanks for your input.

I read on another forum of someone saying that it could be bad thermal compound and to re-apply since the failure seems almost random. Gonna try some new goop and see what happens.

I highly doubt its overheating within a matter of seconds even with no thermal compound it would not do this, but no harm done with new tim

I agree, especially because it's liquid cooled and even if there were no compound I would think it would run for at least a little bit before overheating, right?

If it's HDD or RAM, How can I diagnose if it dies after the last progress bar of startup recovery is loaded?

Correct it would atleast post into windows no trouble atall.

Do you have any other parts you could swap over and try?

A HA.


It's got to be overheating. I just went into the bios and looked at the CPU temp and before no time it was at 90C so I had to kill it...

Gonna try the goop.
