The time has come to format my computer.

When I try to boot from cd-rom (to instal win 7) the computer will boot from cd-rom. However, my GPU starts randomly spinning faster to its max then after a few seconds the screen will go blank.

When normally starting up the computer everything works. I can use the computer, play video games, watch video with no issue.

The issue only seems to occur when doing anything prior to getting into windows. For example, it also occurs when fiddling in bios.

I'm not sure if the computer stays where it was (still operating) despite the screen going blank or not but the hardware still seems to be running.

Any help to resolve this issue would be appreciated.

Any ideas? I know it sounds kind of random and hard to explain.

Let me know if I can provide any other info to help.

CPU

RAM

Video

Hard drive

PSU

anything else you can add...

No problem:

RAM - Corsair 8GB DDR3

GPU - XFX RADEON HD 5770

Hard Drive (running OS) Seagate 500gb SATA II

PSU - I can't see it without taking it but I believe its a Thermaltake 550w

MOBO - Gigabyte H55M-UD2H

OS - Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit

Have you tried removing the video card and plugging in the onboard video? That would be my next step.
