Hi, this is what I have, Asuss M2V-MX, athlon 64 x2 4400, in a sonata III case, every thing is ok, then sometimes when I bootup it won' bootup I hear the fans I get two leds the power and hdd the hdd led stays on where before it flashers when hdd is active but as I say it stays on. I closed it down had the side panal off tried all the cables nothing wrong there, bootup again this time it boots to windows now this has happended about 2 times I'm puzzled to why this happens, any Idea
This is a new build, I've checked all the cables the psu is a antec 500w it came with the case I know psu that caome with the case are normaly crap but antec psu are good, it could be the hdd it new but I can hear a few quick clicks when I bootup but nothing loud
Doubt the MBR, thats to load the OS, you not even getting a screen from when bios loads, like the diagnostics or the bios'es splash screen. Try a bios update from your motherboard manufacturers website, u ust get ALL details of choosing the update EXACTLEY RIGHT, or you may get large problems, but these updates may solve the problem and may offer new capabilities.
Checked the disc in windows its ok, the system is running great now, its stopped booting twice in three weeks, I don't thing its the psu, how do I check to find out? it could be the cpu, this system is my first new build, when I was installing the heatsink I thought I had it on the wrong way I took it off then put back on, now I know I've broke the seal, but as I Say its running ok no high temps, I'm getting new cpu cooler so how it goes.
