Odd boot up error

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So, I've had my current build for a little over a year now and ever since I got the CPU and motherboard, I've had an odd glitch occur when booting up.

It happens maybe every third or fourth time I boot up, and all that happens is it start the initial POST screen and displays my CPU info, then just hangs. It doesnt load up any other info, like my RAM or HDDs, and it requires me hitting the reset button to break it.

Occasionally it will happen after I hit reset, so will require a third try, but usually thats it.

I updated the BIOS not long after I first noticed it, but the issue still persists.

The only thing I could think that would be causing it is the fact then when installing my CPU, I slipped and dropping the chip in the slot, bending three or four of the pins. I managed to (Well, my fiance managed to, she has steadier hands than me) straighten the pins, though one of them stayed a bit wonky. So I'm thinking that could possibly be the cause, but I'm not sure.

It's not really a huge problem, though sometimes restting it during the boot resets my overclock, as it thinks the PC has been failing to boot for voltage reason, but thats more a nuisance then a real issue.

Does anyone have any idea what could cause it?

Im guessing its your overclock or a setting you have in the bios making it freeze up, since it will boot after it resets to default settings. If your ram is overclocked you might want to put that at default so you can narrow it down to the cpu. If the problem persist put your cpu at default setting and keep doing whatever you can do to narrow down the issue. It might not be your cpu at all if the cpu checks out in post, whatever its checking after the cpu could be the problem.

I don't think it's my CPU overclock, cos it was doing it before I was overclocking it. And my rams at stock speeds.

So I dunno really
