Computer stopped working suddenly

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
My computer was working fine 2 hour ago. Now, when I boot it, the Rampage III intro flashes, and the screen goes black. I can't enter the bios settings. I'm not stuck in a boot loop or anything, I'm not sure what's wrong. My monitor still has a light on that indicates that the computer is on-there is just no picture. Could this be a CPU issue? I really don't want to hear that...

Suggestions?

I know for a fact that my watercooling system did not leak. Also it's not my PSU, because my cold cathodes and everything are powering fine.

I would revert to default settings on everything, see what happens.

I can't get past the intro screen, so I can't really do that.

remove the battery (mobo batt) unplug all cables that are plugged into your pc, flip off power supply, hold down power button for 10seconds, and do the rain dance for about 2 min, pop back in battery + replug up everything, last but not least re flip the power switch on the psu

See if that works.

As per Coolio831, except for the rain dance... that never works for me

What has changed? Did you download anything dodgy? Flash the BIOS? Anything at all?

Did you forget to bow-down towards the end of the song, and hail the almightys?

Okay i'll stop with the unnecessary posts

That's the strange thing-I didn't download anything at all recently and I haven't messed with the BIOS settings. The problem is I have no other computer to test individual components on.

Oh and no, your suggestion did not working. I am feeling a lengthy RMA process...

Has reseting the BIOS worked or no?
