Everything has been running perfectly fine, I have not noticed any issues leading UP to this problem.
Few days ago I was playing World Of Warcraft when suddenly the computer froze with a couple red lines scattered here and there.
Restarted it and all was fine.
A few minutes into loading up another game, red squares everywhere.
Restarted once more to see what would occur and as i expected, red squares.
I opened my computer, cleaned it out (although I did that a week prior anyway), also took apart the GPU, cleaned it out, reseated it, restarted.
Not only did the red squares turn into red lines, but now the computer won't go past the Windows Loading screen (where no red lines appear on this screen), unless in Safe Mode (in which the red lines are still present).
Seems like a GPU problem? No? Googling leads me to believe this as well.
Upon all this happening, I thought..lets see beep codes. Took out the GPU and ran the computer and got *5* short beeps (which Googling, led me to "CPU failure").
So I have red lines, with claims to GPU issue.
5 Beeps, with claims to CPU failure.
I'm unsure of what to do next.
I don't have another PC to test the graphics card on. I already tested the monitors, its not them. And keep in mind now that the computer won't boot past the loading screen.
Any help would be much appreciated.
I don't want to buy something i don't need and waste more time I don't have, its a hectic next two weeks for me.
((I tried a system repair/restore and it says it cannot be done. Booting from last successful boot doesn't work.))
