Hello,

My desktop has been working just fine for the past few years. I had to replace the hard drive once but that was about it. Oh and the 9800gt burnt out so i replaced it with a GeForce GTS250. All has been well until the other day when:

Here is my pc:

This morning i took the entire thing apart to clean. Everything was quite clean to begin with, minimal dust and nothing has changed. I cannot get to BIOS or setup or anything. Just frozen at the blue screen.

Any thoughts?

Ensure that all cards (PCI and RAM) are seated properly.
Ensure all wires and cables are properly connected (Power and data to all devices and fans).
Ensure that the CPU has proper thermal compound applied if you removed the heatsink for cleaning.

Have you made any recent major hardware or software changes?
If I am helping you and I haven't replied to your thread in 3 days, please PM me or bump it

Yep just added new thermal compound. Same deal.

I built my buddies desktop last year, so i get how to put these things together. Something like a grown up erector set right? haha

I did notice this the other day but didn't think anything of it. Its the motherboards power supply.

That is the CPU 4-pin connector. Please make sure to that is connected to the motherboard.

Ensured the CPU is lock and no bent pins.
