Hello,

 

I built a gaming computer, and had no problems up until this week.  For some reason, when I try to load windows, it basically freezes on the loading windows screen.  It's the screen with the 4 squares in different colors.  I'm running windows 7.  A little about the computer. 

Mobo = Asus P6X58D premium
PSU = Corsair professional series gold AX850
RAM = 1 x Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 998778
then added
1 x Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 998946

I have 2 western digital caviar black, and the operating system is installed on a 128 GB SSD.

The graphics card is an evga gtx 580,

power supply is corsair gold 850

 

I've tried removing the ram to see if that was the problem, but I don't think so, I've also removed some hard drives.  When I tried to start up that way it read no hard disk drive detected.  I don't know what else to do.  Does this sound like it can be a power supply problem?  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Michael

OK, this system worked properly for awhile, then it started having the boot problem?

 

I would suspect the SSD as my primary problem child and work from there.

 

Does it boot in safe mode?

No, it does not boot in safe mode.  How do you think I can trouble shoot this?

When was this system put together?

 

When did the problems start?
