Big Problem With My Build. OC Settings not working anymore. Please Help!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok so recently I’ve been having major computer problems/awkwardness, the computer would keep shutting down from 5-40 seconds of hitting the power switch. Now it is not running on my OC settings.

Situation:
It first starts out this way: The computer was on my desk and then I put it on the floor and reconnected general wires, and the computer was running fine for at least over an hour. Then, I had to go somewhere so I turned the computer off. After about 2 hours, when I got home and turned it on, it immediately booted into a low resolution screen (safe-mode I’m guessing). The computer just kept booting into safe mode even after I hit F7 and tried to disable it. After this, I went to device manager and looked at my graphics cards: They had a weird symbol next to them and seemed disabled, I right clicked enable. As soon as I hit enable on my 2nd card, the computer shut off. Now the computer would keep turning on and shutting off each time I hit power.

Main Issue:
After a long while of trying to figure out what was wrong (testing part by part), I found nothing wrong so I removed the CMOS battery and I was then able to boot up into regular (Non-overclocked settings), the graphics drivers were missing, so I reinstalled those. I tried to use the OC settings again and same thing, boot up and shutdown. I have been running this overclock stable for many months now; I don’t see what could be wrong.

hmm.. maybe when you moved your case something happened? maybe you can try to re-seat the graphics cards? and the processor? and make sure the pci-e connectors are properly connected.
just an idea but it might work
