Think i fried my GPU - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Try unplugging the system. Pull all the RAM modules and put them back in. Reset CMOS to reset BIOS.

If same situation...

Try booting from Win Install Disk/USB (however you crazy kids do it these days).
Then follow this... http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392
This is the boot sector repair tool for windows which fixes any issues if the boot sector had a problem, which can result in start up issues like you are having.

If that doesn't work.
Boot back with the Install disk and try a "In Place Upgrade" to reinstall windows but keep all your programs and settings. I do this somewhat often to refresh the windows install.

None of this takes too much time either.

Tried resetting cmos, didnt help.

Also WinDVD boot fails, first it loads the files succesfully, then it says starting windows, then there's that blue screen with green stuff on it and all i have is a pointer, thats it, if i wait for 10 minutes it says setup is starting (yes i have to wait 10 friggin minutes, i dont know why i did initially but turns out stuff happens if you do) and then it just says Setup is starting/loading or something along those lines for an indefinite amount of time, no matter how long i wait it hangs on that....

What the #&/$ is wrong with this thing, i did this before, it wasnt like this, this is totally messed up....
What do i do? Try booting from USB? Wipe :C and fresh install? i really dont want to do that...

It fails to fully load or the screen freezes again?

If it is failing to load, get some coffee because you are going to need to start testing different things. frown.gif

Do you have a Live Boot disk? http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html
You can run a hard drive test and memory test from a USB boot. Very useful things to help try to isolate the problem.

If you still can't find the problem you will have to do it the old fashioned way.
First detach all extra hardware and peripherals. Just run CPU, PSU, Mobo, RAM, OS Harddrive, Video (ok if from cpu), monitor, keyboard + mouse.
If still same issue.
Pull 1 stick of RAM. Try other stick of Ram, change slot - rinse repeat. (This sucks but you can do it! That is why you have coffee! smile.gif )

You might have a motherboard or PSU problem.
Sorry man I know this sucks! But hang in there.

Kind of just runs indefinitely on the "Starting setup" screen, like its running blank, not really doing anything etc etc
I'll try booting from USB aswell, just incase the DVD or the drive is the problem....if not...gah...mad.gif

Also Ill UBCD.

Also i tried booting with no peripherals, no luck.
Will have to check RAM issues..

Actually yeah, pioneer suggested i connect to my pc via Win Remote Desktop Connection,from there i killed my drivers and reinstalled them, which solved the display issue.
Turns out there was nothing wrong with the boot or the registry, simply that old 46xx gen screwing with me.

Repped you dude, thanks a lot for taking the time. I appreciate biggrin.gif

Cool man. Crazy what some drivers can do. I don't know why the in place upgrade wouldn't work, essentially it erases all drivers and rebuilds the registry. Crazy...
