Last night my computer went while in use to a black screen and nothing responded anymore.

After turning it off it wouldn't go on anymore, i removed the cables, drained the power and tried again.

At this point the pc does start but nothing works (black screen once again) and keeps rebooting after about 30sec.

The fans are spinning but not hearing any beeps.

 

I tried removing ram, only 1 ram, the videocard, hdds and dvd player and no cigar.

Does anyone know whats wrong? I'm thinking psu or mobo at this point but since the pc is powered for over 30secs its likely not the psu.

 

Thanks in advance.

can you try the monitor with a different PC?

 

the hardware you have is quite robust. i would power down, reset the BIOS by removing the CMOS battery for a few minutes and putting it back in...and make sure everything is in place and power up...press f8 for boot options ---->safe mode and see what happens....this could be A RAM-related BSOD that happened so fast you didn't see it, and you have to change the boot option settings to not reboot on BSOD.error...i think it defaults to reboot on BSOD, which prevents the user from having to power it down with the power button, which could corrupt the windows OS

 

i found this support info on your mobo..i worked on a gigabyte mobo last week, it was a refreshing change from my old ASUS getups

After all the help and a tech savy friend my pc is declared dead, thanks for the replies guys.

Time to join the current age and just get a new rig. (should have done that years ago)

Last thing i have to add is that gigabyte is very reliable and surely did its job, pc was on 24/7 so it has surely been taxed.

 

Thanks once again and this can be graved :)
