Hello all so I'm having a bit of a problem so when I power my pc on it gets to the post screen the power cuts and the system reboots. I tried a different psu different ram sticks and reseat the cmos but still the same issue. Any ideas?

considering you didn't list the specs, and 450w would be on the low side for a 1080, seems valid lol. what are the specs of this system?

Off the top of my head, could be many things. Could be a failed BIOS or driver update, maybe a memory controller problem or damaged CPU...

 

Couple of things to try:

1. If you boot without a HDD/SSD connected, does behaviour change?

2. Try booting with a single stick of RAM, but try it separately in each memory slot. Might be a dead memory channel.

 

Would also recommend swapping to the iGPU if you have one and removing your dedicated GPU from the system, just to eliminate variables at this stage.

So I've tried removing the gpu. It only had a single stick of ram and I'm ae to boot to the bios once in bios the system will stay on indefinitely it's detectingg all system components too

Is that with or without a disk attached?

 

If the disk is still attached, try the 1070 in a different machine if you can. If that works, could be driver related but could also be PCI-E related I guess.

 

If the disk is not attached, now try putting the GPU back in. If it still works, you've probably just got a corrupted bootloader or something. A reinstall of your OS would hopefully fix that. If not, sounds like a dead GPU.

Didn't think about unplugging the hdd. I just did and it boot directly to the uefi without issue

But I can also get to the bios with the hdd plugged in I just have to press f2 of course

So HDD is out and GPU is... out? If so, now put GPU in and test.

So hdd is irrelevent. Can you boot into windows with GPU removed?

Ok, likely a Windows issue then. To test this theory, make yourself a linux usb install and try and boot to that.

Wait, this is completely different from your signature.

No bueno I put in a windows 10 install usb and it's reading that. Imma do a full install to see if that works so far so good

No bueno on Linux, sounds more like BIOS or memory then... :/

 

If a windows reinstall works, fantastic. If not, try flashing to the latest bios, if it can do that.

Maybe it was a bad linux dongle.. but windows was I stalled without issue and it's in the process setting windows up. I would have never thought it was a bad install of Windows. I bought this whole system second hand for $150 can't believe this was the issue ahaha

Damn, not bad for the price, especially if you chuck in a cheap SSD. Enjoy!
