Desperate Plea for Help

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Alright well something is wrong with my computer but I’m completely clueless as to what and I’m hoping you guys can help me out. I first started having trouble after I unplugged and opened up my case a couple weeks ago. Now when I I try to boot up something goes wrong, but the thing is it’s not always the same problem.

Roughly 75% of the time it won’t boot at all, not even to Bios. I press the power button, all the case fans and lights come on, my gpu and cpu fans kick on, I hear the hdd start up but on the screen nothing, similar to what it did when I first built it and forgot the 4 pin molex(yes I did check to make sure I didn’t bump that by accident). I also know the problem isn’t just a bad monitor or cable due to the fact that nothing comes up on my alternate monitor (aka my TV) either.

Other times, the computer will somehow boot into bios and then freeze before it hits the OS loading page. Even rarer I can get it to get to the loading page of windows 7, but it will freeze before I get to my desktop. Rarer still is the one time I got it to boot to my desktop and I thought the problem had somehow worked itself out. But I could tell that something was off when this happened, it ran much slower than normal and it seemed to be just a matter of time until it crashed which it eventually did.

The other day I had the idea to boot to a ssd I got for Christmas but have yet to do anything with other than loading the os onto it. When I did this it booted fine and ran smoothly but after trying to restart and boot onto the hdd, it again crashed while loading the OS.

Soooo, I really have no clue what’s going on here, has anyone ever been in a situation like this before? I originally thought the problem was with the MB until all of a sudden one day it booted to the os, because obviously if the mb was fried I wouldn’t have been able to get there. So then I thought maybe I had a hdd problem because that would explain my inability to properly load the OS but it doesn’t explain why the majority of the time I can’t even get into bios. My final thought is that I have a psu problem, I typically can’t get into bios because the Mb isn’t getting enough power, and on the rare occasion it does the hdd isn’t getting enough power to allow the os to boot, but I was able to boot up to the ssd because they don’t use as much power?

I don’t know that much about how that stuff works, I could, for all I know, be completely wrong and as you can probably tell I’m grasping at straws here, and any help would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance for any help.

Have you tried resetting the CMOS? After verifying all the connection that's what I would do.

Plug the 4 pin speaker into the FP header and tell us the beeps you hear.

Also, try what the guy above me suggested.

Is there a bios update which supports the 1090t? Could be PS/RAM/or MB.

1. Swap out the MB if you have another MB that supports the 1090t. Make sure PS connectors to MB are properly plugged in.

2. Try another PS if you have one.

3. Make sure RAM is properly in the MB slots.

4. Try different ram. You may have a bad stick.

You're not gonna see if your RAM is bad in the BIOS. try running memtest see if it catches some errors.

Reset cmos or spam delete, get in bios, set defaults, save and exit, pray.



& do it fast before it freezes, I've been there, and setting to default got it rolling again.
