Recently I have purchased a computer. It has been working for more than 2-3 weeks. However all of the sudden one day when powering it on it would turn off again then boot into windows. However last night I installed some programs "LGUP" to repair my phone. After installing the programs my computer rebooted and worked normal until after 10-15 minutes it rebooted again. I ignored it once more, however it happened again, then I put it aside and came back later. I logged in started using it and it worked for 40ish minutes this time, then the computer screen froze and rebooted. This time the computer now turns on then off then on then off, no display output. I'll admit I did buy this off craigslist, and the only thing I added to the system were two drives: an ssd with my copy of windows, and 2tb hdd for random files / games. However one time it was going through the boot it said something about "bad overclocking setup" and said press f2/del to go into setup. I did that but couldn't find the settings the proper settings to set it back to auto.

 

Here are the specs:

Intel i7 4750k

Nitro r9 fury

asus z-97a

16gb of ddr3

and the PSU is over 1000w

Hi, welcome to Bleeping Computer. Hope you learn a lot here. :)

 

Yes, resetting BIOS is normally the way, and removing and reinstalling the CMOS battery should do this for you. If that does not help, try to reset BIOS settings to factory default, and see if this works, please.

 

By all means, let us know how it goes. We love when people post their solutions! :)
