Think I've killed my cpu - Page 3

post #21 of 34
Thread Starter 
:/ The only other psu I have is dead, the fan just grinds away. And the pc doesn't turn off, I just get no picture, I get the beep, all my fans are working, my disk drives work and I can hear my hdd working.

#1 thing I always check first in this case are drivers, but as it seems that you cannot get into the desktop, have you tried booting it with the motherboard graphics without your gpu plugged in. I have a feeling that your psu is not providing enough electricity to the system, rather then it being broken.

Without gpu plugged in.....

*facepalm* I'll be right back XD

So, tried it again without gpu, ran system restore, and then once again the image cut out when the PC got to the login screen. I can't think of anything that would do that, as everything must be running correctly to get that far (as far as I know)

Dang it! I thought that would work for sure. Here's an idea: Unplug everything from the psu, plug just the psu into the wall, and short it by bending a paperclip and putting each end into the pin of the green and any black wire. Flip the power switch on, and see if it randomly turns off after a couple of minutes. The psu itself could be overheating.

Actually scratch that, that wouldn't mean anything, because you already said that your hard drives and fans keep spinning. Hmm.

Right, I'll try reseting the cmos again this time using the jumper, and I'll also switch round some of the power cables and see if it's any of them. I know one of them is screwed as I've had a similar problem before and after changing the connected cable I got picture back.

Cool. I feel a solution coming on! thumb.gif

Nope, still cuts out picture as it gets to the log in screen. But at least resetting the cmos worked this time. If I had a dvi cable I'd try that, but unfortunately I don't, so I have no way of knowing whether the vga port on my mobo is screwed or not.

Okay, so another one of the power cables is screwed. Two of the pin inside are gone. I'll try it again without my blu-ray plugged in, and if it works I'll know I need to get a new psu before I can use my blu-ray
