Hey guys, so I spent all day rebuilding my computer with a new loop and GPU. Everything else hardware wise is the same except I switched from SLI GTX480's to a 660 Ti FTW+ I bought from a member on here. After finishing the build I go to start it up and immediately in the BIOS there are green/pink lines flashing everywhere. Then, it will not boot into windows. It starts to load windows but then just keep restarting. I am able to get into safe mode and all my files are fine and all the hardware is recognized. What the hell is going on?!?! The only thing I can think of is that the GPU might be bad, and I really hope that is not the case. Thanks for the help guys

Try putting in another GPU and see if that works. I don't think that the BIOS would be all wacked out if the GPU was bad though.

Unfortunately I do not have another GPU to test it with frown.gif

If you are getting lines flashing in the BIOS, its almost definitely to do with the graphics card - sounds like it may have faulty memory. I know you said it was restarting as it booted windows, have you tried safe mode? I've see systems with faulty cards restart as they try to load the video driver, but make it into safe mode, albeit with problems like lines/screen corruption. It would kinda confirm it's the card at fault.

ok, you can try going into the comp management / event viewer, and see what the boot is failing on. I think you'll find its the video driver.
