PC keeps rebooting with black screen

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi OCN,

Yesterday my computer froze while I was watching a movie, I couldn't move the cursor and nothing was happening, so I waited for a few minutes and then I shut down my PC.
Now when I try to start my computer, it tries to boot for 2-3 sec, then falls off, then goes again for 0.5 sec, then again 2-3 sec, etc etc
All the time I don't get a signal to my monitor, so I can't see anything happening, but it does sound like something is starting.

Things I've tried:

Reset CMOS battery
Change with 1 ram stick at a time in different slots.
Change PSU
Change GPU

My specs:

CPU - i7 920
Mobo: Asus P6T Deluxe
Ram: Corsair Dominator 3x 2GB PC3-12800
GPU: Sapphire 5970
PSU: Cooler Master 1000W


Thx a lot in advance for any suggestions!

my best suggestion would be to try booting with a blank HDD and a Windows disk (or watever OS you're using).
If it doesn't boot up then it's hardware related.

EDIT: Did you happen to notice what your temps where at when it froze?

This happens to me when i specify incorrect ram timings or clocks on my p8p67 pro... On my motherboard there is a 'memOK' button I can push and it detects the ram's settings and it usually boots after that. If that fails then I clear cmos like you said you've already tried...

Have you tried resetting the cmos by actually moving the cmos clear jumper one pin over for 30 seconds then moving it back?

If that doesn't work, you could try swapping out the ram with another stick. If that does not fix it, i'd suspect cpu failure or motherboard failure. Put your cpu in someone elses mobo to see if the same problem happens. If it boots then its likely your mobo, if not it is the cpu.

Are you having issues getting to windows?
Does it get to the starting of windows screen?

If it doesn't get to windows I recommend pulling every external peripheral including all USB devices and see if it gets into windows.

If it gets into windows like this I would then add one device at a time to identify the problem peripheral.

If it Does not then you need to continue into the pc to isolate problem hardware. Uninstall everything except for the essentials.

Start it with one stick of ram one hard drive.

Report back with results.












I had a mouse cord cause a similar issue.

I covered both getting into windows and not getting into windows so my post is still help full. Yes I read the post. Just covering extra bases. You can get into windows with no display.

If your read my post you will see that my suggestion actually covers the issue of no display. I am thinking it could be a simple short somewhere in the system. USB is the most common device to have a short in my experience.

It started completely dieing, when I pressed the boot button it would be on for 0,1 sec and then instantly be off, figured it had to be the mobo, got worse every time i tried to boot, gonna RMA it
PC works if i replace cpu/mobo/ram with the old ones (socket 775), tested all rams 1 by 1 in all slots and figured it can't be the CPU because it wouldn't fall out so fast

Thx for the suggestions all! ;-)
