Hello. My computer hasnt been working right ever since I got it 2 years ago. I pretty much ignored it and up until a few months ago my computer constantly crashes, and is now at the point where it won't boot (black screen but fans are still running). I get no POST screen or anything. So I opened the case up and the LED on the mobo says "26". I looked in the manual for what code 26 stands for and this is what it says "26: Clock Gen - Init onboard clock generator and sensor". I have no idea what a clock gen is or what its function is, but thats the code my computer gets to. Any ideas on what is wrong with it?

My system specs are:
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Motherboard: Nvidia nForce 750i sli
Video Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 470
RAM: 4 gigs DDR2
PSU: (Hush Puppy?) 680 watt

If you need anymore information about the specs, feel free to ask.

Thanks,
Mike

Can you provide a picture of the side panel of the Power Supply where it lists the output and input voltages?

Something that looks like this:

Can you try and assemble the computer outside the case on a rubber mat or a cardboard box? What this will do is eliminate possible shorts between the case and the motherboard which can cause weird issues.

Possible causes for shorts:

1) Improper mounting of motherboard.

2) Bugs and Insects being attracted to the warmth.

3) Dust since it can build up and cause static electricity.

Id rather not try to disassemble it. It has liquid cooling systems throughout it and 35000 wires. I'd have to take it somewhere.

Liquid cooling systems require more maintenance then air cooled systems.

This includes changing the fluid every 3 to 4 months and making sure the hoses are not crystallized.
