Pc wont boot

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So after waking up and sitting for a cup of coffee before my university courses,i pushed the power button to browse for a while.

But the pc never got to post.It manages to get into bios and post but after this,the screen remains black and i can only see some tiny artifacts in the top left side of the monitor.It stays there and i cant go into the login screen of windows.It the last few weeks i had my screen loced in a green-artifacts sceen and had to hard reset to exit and boot again.

At first i thought the gpu was fried -a 6970- and tried my older working gpu -8800 gts- with the same exact symptoms.I took all the power plugs from my hdds and left only the main-windows drive and removed any other cards i had -my sound card,a usb pci card-.Still the same.I took all 4 dimms of memory off and left only one,no luck whatsoever.I also used the cmos jumper and loaded the fail safe settings,without success.I never had any temp problems and my overclock was set with minimum vots and temps in mind.My m/b initially showed the 90 error code,which relates with pci or gpu failure.But now it tries to boot and shows the FF message but with a black screen.

My only last attempt will be to try a different psu -ill have to borrow one from a friend- and check if the 6970 works to anoter pc.

My pc consists of an Abit Ip35 pro,Q6600@3.2 with minimal voltages,6gigs of ddr2 ram,a 6970,a PC Powe and Cooling 750w psu and 5 hdds.

Any suggestions would be welcomed.

thanks in adance!

A pic which illustrates my problem better.

I get the same error on the same stage of booting with both gpus tested.

So you can get into bios? Can you see the drive being detected/windows loading being initiated before it freezes? If just the drive is bad it can stop botting, but usually it will just sit with a small cursor in the top left blinking. The glitch you are describing sounds motherboard related, because if the CPU was at fault I doubt you would even see BIOS.

Maybe it could be the hard drive, worth at least putting in the windows disk to see if it will load off the CD drive. If the windows setup can load from the CD drive that would mean motherboard/CPU are good. I'm kind of thinking bad motherboard on this one though.

I tried to boot from my win 7 64bit cd and it went fine,though it stuck on the first screen where you choose the time,language and k/b language.It stuck there and i couldnt press next cause both my mouse and k/b seems not to be recognised even though when in bios the k/b worked fine.So i get my wd 640gb died?Id like to mention also that i had no hdd installed when i tried to boot from cd.

Thanks for your help.

It should not freeze at the time selection screen. The fact that it is still booting rules out a CPU problem, but the fact that it can't seem to load anything indicates a motherboard failure. This is not the HDD having an issue.

Be sure to try booting again but with a different RAM stick to make sure you don't have a bad RAM stick, but this sounds like the motherboard to me.

I managed to activate the k/b and mouse -it was a setting in bios,usb k/b bios or OS and it was set to OS,when i changed to bios they both worked fine-.

So i connected my win hdd and booted from cd.I managed to get to a point where it said to repair it and i selected it but still no luck.Another guy mentioned a display drivers issue.

My to do list:check both gpus and OS hdd to another pc and finally report back.

I appreciate the help!

OIC well if it's only freezing once the HDD is involved that would indicate that it is the source of the trouble.

update:i booted with a ubuntu live cd and things worked,even though right before log in i saw a distorted screen with artifacts and black broken lines.It was for a split second thoguh.After that it got in and i could see my win 7 hdd and use the files there.

Any more ideas as to what is at fault here would be more than helpfull.

I already got another m/b and cpu (i found a nice priced used i5 750 with a decent mobo) and im waiting for a ssd,new psu and 8gigs of ram.But i wouldnt like a suprising bad gpu.

I mean if the system is running stable as long as it doesn't have to run off the HDD I think you're good to go. Once you get in that new SSD you could slap windows on that and continue to use the other drive for storage until it totally stops working.

Thanks for the replies guys.

I dont know if its the hdd or the gpu.

If it was a gpu issue,then why when i tested a 8800 gts did the same?Thats what puzzle me.Ill test both gpus to a different pc tomorrow and my hdd to see whats its causing it.

Could a faulty pci lane on the mobo be the one to blame?
