Computer wont boot up

Go to solution Solved by helping,

Yes. Tried it without the GPU in there and no change.

Only option is to try and take it to a shop and have them test the motherboard if you can't verify the rest of the components individually. 

 

They shouldn't charge you. 

Yesterday my computer (specs in signature) was freezing a lot. Had to force reboot it. I couldn't figure out how to fix it so I powered it down and went to bed. Today I try to turn the thing on and it's not happening. It seems like it's getting power (fans turn on, sounds like normal), but it's not even getting to the bios splash screen before it reboots itself (infinite reboot loop). I don't hear any beeps from it.

 

Is my motherboard dead? Or could it be something else? I should note that this computer has been working for a long time without issue. This is very sudden.

 

Yesterday when it was freezing I ran both an AVG and Malwarebytes scan which didn't find any issues.

I had the same issue, it probably has something to do with not recognizing your drives properly OR something else is not connected to your motherboard.

Clear CMOS and unplug hard drives, CD drives, and all non essential USB devices. Try to boot into BIOS.

There are 4 LEDs at the top of the motherboard that light up until it powers off to reboot itself.

unplug all drives, all CD, all USB thingies except for keyboard.

 

Remove one RAM stick, clear CMOS, try to boot. 

If it doesn't boot

 

Replace the removed stick, and take out the previous stick, clear CMOS, and try again. 

 

does this PC have a discrete GPU?

Had any thunderstorms lately, and do you have surge protectors(including on your broadband line)?

 

Additionally if your using a discrete gpu and you have a cpu with integrated graphics try using the graphics output on the motherboard, to rule out its not the graphics card causing issues.

That didn't work. Yes I have a GTX 770.

No thunderstorms. I do have surge protected power bar.

So you've tested each ram stick individually clearing CMOS between each try, right?

You'll have to test the GPU after that or try onboard.

If the GPU and RAM, and storage is fine it's most likely an issue with the motherboard.

 

Doesn't seem to be a PSU issue because it looks like you're stuck at POST, and I doubt your CPU broke.

Thanks, it's in a shop now and will get this taken care of. They aren't charging me to look at it which is good. Should hear back from them tonight or tomorrow and then will make decisions from there.

 

If anyone wants to help me out further, you can recommend a replacement motherboard in my new thread. Thanks again everyone.
