OK that didnt work, still in this endless rebooting loop
Did you try changing your SATA config, probably you are in ACHI mode before. When you reset CMOS, your SATA mode will change back to default.

Dont think it has dual bios. When I went to reset the cmos earlier, I had forgotten which jumper was what. There was 2 next to each other so I just done both of them and then put them back to where they were, It seems the CMOS did reset successfully but still not booting properly

I have never changed any SATA configs with this board. I do use a solid state drive but I never had to change any settings to get it working previously

I can only think of your board problem right now. Sorry!

after selecting "boot from cd" and putting in a windows disk it has started the windows setup process without rebooting. Does this mean its likely to be my SDD that has died? I thought it would just say boot error though, any thoughts?

now u mentioned loading works with windows disc, i had the same problem a while back, turned out to be my hdd not connecting properly. pull out ur ssd and reconnect it with a different sata cable to a different sata port on ur mobo. fingers crossed

Im back for a little bit. Most likely your culprit was the video card slot. Now that you changed slots and reseted cmos you have a new problem and thats probably your ssd in your bios. I never have owned an ssd but have saw where some setting had to be changed in the bios to get it to be read properly.

Or you need to set up, in BIOS, your first boot device as your device with windows on it.

Try removing all slots (ram, vga, nic) and spray the whole motherboard with anti-static spray (I think that's what it's called. Not sure though)
Spray it on the edges of the cards as well (the part that connects with the mobo). Wait 5 minutes for it to dry off (it dries off quite fast) and then replug everything and try to boot it.

I used to work in a computer workshop and a lot of times that actually did it.
Also if you have a blower to clean up the psu and the cpu fan would be nice.

I finally got it to boot by changing the sata port on the motherboard. It's weird how the pc just suddenly turned off in the first place and then wouldnt boot though. I wonder what the inital cause was.

oh well, anyway its working now. Thanks guys!

Glad to hear! I still think your PCIe lane might have crapped out. You should try putting the card back and see what happens. If you havent already.
