Ok so I'm new to computer building but instead of buying a next gen console I decided to build two new gaming computers. I used the site pcpartspicker to do a virtual build and did my research to make sure I got the parts I wanted. I ended up spending 800 dollars per pc (one for myself and one for my wife). The pcs are identical. So the parts arrived and I had help from two IT professionals while putting them together. Once together I installed windows 8.1 64 bit on both then installed drivers for my motherboard and graphics card. At first they were great, until I shut them down for the first time. The next time I went to start them up the start up time went from a few seconds to thirty minutes. I followed advice and turned off fast boot on both. The problem persisted. I then defraged and cleaned both. The problem persisted. I then went into the motherboard bios and changed the boot order so the hard drive was first to boot. Once again the problem persisted. It has now been a week and I'm at wits end as well as my wife. The problem has since gotten worse now they like to say there was a problem starting up and like to restart, which leads to an seemingly infinte loop of restarts. They also like to say they are finishing up some updates and restart. Which also leads to an infinite loop of restarts. Tonight I turned them both on at 730pm and they didin't successfully boot up til 10pm. Some one please help I'd like to think I didn't just throw 1600 dollars into the trash.
TLDR: My two new 800 dollar pcs are taking longer and longer to boot each time even after all "easy fix" solutions have been attempted.
Build of pcs: Processor- AMD Athlon 750k, Motherboard- MSI A88X-G43, Hard Drive- Western Digital Caviar Blue 320GB, Video Card- Gigabyte Radeon R9 270X, Power Supply- N/A (Not sure what brand the new ones are the original ones were Corsair 500 watts but they didn't come with all the parts needed so a local computer shop installed two 700 watt ones instead), Optical Drive- LG Dvd burner, Operating System- Windows 8.1 64bit.
Thanks in advance!
