Hey guys. I had to take out a case fan which had a stripped screw to get to the cmos switch lol, thats why it took so long
this P5Q placement of important stuff is a bit weird. Anyway. I've cleared the CMOS and checked it was in the right place. This didnt bring any joy unfortunately.
I then removed all of the cable that werent essential, and tried the CMOS again.
I took out the Ram and tried to boot with no Ram, nothing, then cleared the CMOS again as i got in the habit lol
Tired it with one stick, another stick, then another, and then in a different slot.
Bearing in mind..
|I...it was working fine for a week, moved into my new flat, ... turned it on and turned on it did, the windows loading screen came up fine, and then it just froze, a simple crash i thought, so i reset it and nothig was posted, blank screen (no picture), so i rset the BIOS and hoped for joy, but the screen was still blank. When i tryied again, it wouldnt even fire up...
It worked for a week, and i only went around the corner, have another PC in the same plug sockets that im typing on now (God I hate having 256 MB DDR ram grr lol)
There seems to be no budging it, ive tried it with no graphics as well Chicken and i got the same thing happen lol. I wish I had the opportunity to test the CPU and Ram, it would save a lot of aggro now
oh dear haha. i gotta laugh about it
what do yall think it could be after all the diagnostics weve completed?Edited by High Roller - 12/13/08 at 5:47pm
