pinkerton Posted May 9, 2006 Posted May 9, 2006 First post so here goes: My PC started rebooting at any given moment, this became more regular. Now the PC wont even boot into Windows, it gets to the Windows XP boot up screen and then resets. I tried last known good configuration, safe mode, VGA mode ETC but does the same thing. Tried a reinstall and it seems to get as far as copying files then locks up. I have even tried installing Linux and that fails at copying files. I have unplugged my raid config and tried a spare drive on both the silicon image and NF4 SATA chipsets, same result. Have tested with spare memory, same result. I have reset the bios to optimum defaults, and even flashed to latest bios with no change. Whatever I have tried I cant boot into or reinstall any operating system. I am left thinking it can only be either the motherboard or CPU, temperature's are running nice and low, only maybe the chipset is a bit higher as I replaced the noisy fan with a zalman heasink which keeps it at a max 44 degrees. Hopefully my pc specs are in my sig, any suggestions? has my mobo had it? Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
