No Idea What happened...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Yeah, I'm at a loss as to what happened to my rig...I know for a fact that the HD is gone, I've tried it in several other computers, still no go. Well, easy to fix right? I put another HD in there which already has XP on it and works fine on other computers. But it still gets stuck in a continual restart loop, so this leads me to believe its the mobo. I've erased CMOS several times, tried different PSUs in it, even tried different RAM as well, still the same restart loop.

So, I'm at a complete loss. I have no idea what happened to it. Worked fine literally one minute, and crashed hard the next and hasn't worked since. It may be the CPU which is why I stuck this in the AMD section. I'm open to any ideas you guys might have... :/

No spare mobo?

Since there's no beep, I'd say it's either the CPU or the mobo, as you presume.

Yeah, no spare mobo lying around. I only built this thing three months ago, I haven't changed anything out so I don't have a spare one. I guess I'll try a different CPU and if it goes nowhere then I know what to replace. Gigabytes are usually so durable too, guess I got unlucky. :/

I'm running a gigabyte, and I had the same problem you have now, but I sorted it by erasing the cmos...

Not necessarily. Don't know if this needs to be said, but during windows installation, drivers specific to the hardware on your mobo are installed--if these drivers are not present on a HD that had the OS installed on a different mobo, then it could lead to problems like a restart loop. I've had instances where a HD from a different computer works on my mobo, and others don't--kinda depends on the situation, so you can't always use this as a diagnostic of your mobo. The only way would be to get a fresh HD, and try a fresh install of the OS--not much else to try (unless you can see visual damage on the mobo like a busted cap., etc.).
