cpu turns on and off after updating catalyst

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
my cousin told me after he updated his catalyst, his compuer turns on and off. he was able to turn it on after he updated the catalyst, but after that it wont anymore.
he already removed mobo's battery and the ram also but the its still doesnt work.

his pc turns on only on the gigabyte screen then it shuts off right away. i think before it turn on and off then turn on again

his pc spec is
i7 870
gigbaybyte p55 udp4
twin frzr 3 6950
antec 520 watts
8gb ram
windows 7
1gb wd black
stock cooler

Doesn't sound like a software related issue (unless there's a BSOD if so you could upload a .dmp file and I will help you out).
Can you get into the bios and stay there without crashing?
If not a component may be over heating (GPU/CPU).

Or it could be a short. Did the computer get knocked hard recently? Do above ^^ first, then, what I would do is rip all the components apart and run the mobo, cpu, ram, hdd, psu by itself (naked) on the table.
