Yes - so can RAM, plus other cards (eg model), even some keyboard, mouse and drive problems.

Try with as little as possible connected - and try swapping the RAM (if you've got two sticks, try with each one in turn.

Thanks DieSse, tried changing all 4 sticks of ram one at a time but still the same so it looks like a new CPU is the order of the day. Once again many thanks for your help

I had a Hard Drive that as soon as it was connected stopped The Computer Dead in its Tracks. As soon as it was disconnected it would boot to BIOS. Fitted new Drive and it worked after loading windows
