Cannot bootup - need help (tried CMOS clear)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Everything was fine, I went for a greater OC. I put in 275(from bios) and it went through normal stuff, past bios, then hung on windows bootup. Normal you say, well it got wierd from there. As it rebooted I hit del to enter bios to back it down, it wouldn't enter bios. It just hung. So I powered off(holding power button) and restarted. All the lights flashed on the case(dvd's) but monitor was blank. I restarted again, same deal. This has happened before, So i cleared the cmos. Always fixed it before. Not this time. So I cleared it again. same deal. The system looks and sounds like it boots. You can hear the dvd's spin up. But the triple lights on keyboard do not light up, and the screen is just blank. Any and all help would be appreciated. Thanks

I hope you didn't toast your ram. If you can get a friends pc, test out the different parts. i.e. ram, video card. So you can eliminate which one might be the problem. I don't mean to insult you, but did you make sure that when you cleared the cmos you left it in the clear position for long enough? It takes a certain amount of seconds before it will actually clear.

just unplug it for a few minutes... drain power from the board by touch in the power button, then try it... has worked for me in the past

do you have a speaker connected to your mobo?? it would let you know if something was wrong with the RAM or the cpu.

Just for the heck of it, reset your CMOS again with the power unplugged and battery removed. Then put the battery in and clear the CMOS again. Now you are sure it is cleared. Boot it up.

If it doesn't help, it looks like your video card and/or ram are no good.
Try to exchange them with good ones to see if they are still good.

I've lost Ram, Video cards, Motherboards and CPUs to overclocking.
There is a trail of smoking computers behind me...

I tried clearing the cmos at least 5 times. The jumper is definatley back in correct position, and I did the battery thing too. I took ram out completely and still no boot. I don't think it's the video card, because of the keyboard not lighting up. When the bios finishes it always blinks the triple lights then moves to windows. but there is no action at all on the keyboard. I'm gonna be pissed If I frid the cpu or mother board. I have an extra mobo, and extra ram so tonight I will diagnose those 2.

Sounds like the MoBo to me. All because of that P.O.S. Antec maybe. Sorry but I don't trust Antec PSUs at all, I think Intel systems and them don't go hand-in-hand.

Mobo wouldn't be the worst, I hope I didn't hurt the 950. I am going to tear down tonight. I have extra ram a,d mobo and cpu so I'll figure it out somehow. What's wierd is, it's done this before, but it came back on after a few hours. I kept getting up last night to check it. That was a horrible night sleep. Almost like a my child was in pain..lol

I wish you the best of luck! I know that during my first series of o/c'ing my Pentium D 805, that when I pushed a little to far, and the comp just shut down, I was really scared that I buggered something. Keep us updated!
