URGENT Computer won't boot

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Can someone help me? I'm baffled as to why my computer won't turn on, it was working perfectly fine yesterday and it won't boot today. I keep getting a boot loop. I replaced the motherboard battery but I seem to have made the problem worse. Now I can't even get to the BIOS splash screen, I get no display on my 780 or integrated. BIOS code isn't helping either because it just reads AO once it thinks it's booting. Typing this on my phone atm, I need help ASAP as I need my computer to type a research paper that's due on Monday. Uploading a vid of the problem right now.

Get down to bare essentials. I stick of ram on board graphics try a different psu. Doesn't AO mean its in windows? Maybe monitor or GPU?

I can try one stick of ram but if it's a RAM issue it'll be a pain to find a bad stick because I have four. AO does mean it's in windows so I have no idea what the deal is. I've tried integrated and my 780 but it didn't change anything, which leads me to believe that it's not the GPUs fault, and I don't have a spare PSU to test so I'm not sure if that's the issue.

Doesn't sound like the PSU clear CMOS and use integrated graphics. What's the monitor doing? What happens if you unplug the monitors connection from the pc? Does it go into a test mode? I think if it was the ram it wouldn't say AO you would get a different error code

Hope you get this sorted.

So, you've cleared CMOS and therefore not running any overclocks right?

You've made sure the BIOS is set up to boot to the correct drive?

Yeah the CMOS is cleared AFAIK as it took around 15 mins to replace the battery because I had to find another. I'm not sure about the boot order though because I can't get into the BIOS at all. It's very strange that my computer would just decide to not work today.

edit nvm
Getting error code 15 now with two sticks installed. 51 with four. I get both now. I'm really at a loss here.

I think that my issue might be the H80i, it might have bent the pins on the motherboard over time.

What pins did it bend? I can't see how that would happen unless it was a bad installation, or it was very cramped in the case maybe?
