Wacky problem, please help me out!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok, here is what I am facing. Last night my rig was working fine. I start up my computer this morning (its happened before though too, so its not just a fluke), and the screen will flash the normal bootloader up on the screen but not for as long of a period of time as it normally does. It continues to boot, flashing screens on and then off again for about a min while it goes through the boot sequence then never returns to where I can view anything on the screen. I know this is not something software related. It does the same thing when its going through the self check and the bios setup screen.

Ive RMAed my motherboard 2x now and my graphics card 1x. SO...this is my dilemma.

Could it be a bonked out PSU, Processor, RAM, Something about the case shorting something out? I'm totally at a loss at what this could be.

All the specs you need are in my sig. BTW, this was at the stock core speeds and everything. No overclocking at all.

Sounds liek it could be the RAM or the CPU

Can you access the BIOS and stay in it for long enough?

If so i reckon it isn't the CPU or a heat issue.

In that case it would most likely be your RAM

I doubt it is the PSU because when it turned off, it wouldn't come back on and the same with grounding. But check none of your cables are touching the case just to be sure.

Have you tried a re-install of the operating system? It could be corrupt, or maybe the HDD is on its way out.

Havent really tried accessing the bios, the spot on which I do it, it blinks then disappears. I just figured it would be worthless to try. I suppose I could though.

As far as the PSU goes, some are just not stable right? I could ahve gotten a bad one?

Ive re installed the OS when it works several times and several diffrent distros of Linux, so its not that.

HD, maybe, I'm not sure.

Is there any way to test this stuff?

Bios didnt work either.

Heres the kicker. I took off the side panels and shook the wiring. So far so good. I wonder if one of the side panels is cutting into the wiring...HMMM.

Grounding will do that and as it does...it messes up everything else piece by piece...PSU,CPU,Motherboard next to follow

Well. I guess its time to shut down and re route some wires then.

Be back in a while.

So far so good. I haven't had any issues with it since I re routed some wires...maybe I had a sharp edge digging into the wiring...who knows.
