Is it OCed? My gigabyte spins the HSF for a second, then it stops and then spins again. What are your temps in BIOS? I agree, clear CMOS and see if it still does it.

Then i would suggest clearing the BIOS via CMOS jumper or battery.

Comeback with feedback.

Hey this is Dean's friend, he text me, his PC has done the thing where the HSF revs and no output is displayed so he can't get on at this time.

Has he tried clearing CMOS? Tell him to try with one stick of RAM. If nothing, try the other. Since he got a BSOD, there could be another issue. It could be the PSU, but might as well try.

He gets "Warning CPU has been changed" after trying cmos clear, he also got a checksum error.

He gets CMOS checksum error and Warning CPU has been changed. Then press F1 to continue so he does and then a BSOD after loading of windows.

i am guessing with all the stuff im been testing in my computer like 4870hd + new psu n stuff, u think that i may have corrupted a few files on my operating system? or a virus maybe?

Well, I suppose it could have been a less-than-perfect data connection with the other hard drive.
