I am continuing a hardware issue that I can not find the solution to.
I recently broke my computer by running a BIOS update. (previous thread)
I somehow got my computer to load a USB by reseating the entire computer.
Now My system crashes to BSOD while trying to reinstall Windows 10.
I have tried changing every cable, reducing my CPU clock, changing RAM and RAM slots. Changing motherboards and even hard drives.
The last thing would be the Processor (cant find a way to test this without an OS) or finding a BIOS setting that is causing this.
If the processor was damaged, would the computer not POST, or is there a semi-broken state that would not allow for an OS to run? I do not want to ship to Intel under warranty unnecessarily.
In the BIOS all 4 cores are clocking equally (default 4400 Mhz) at 44 degrees.
Are there any BIOS settings that would potentially prevent OS's from loading/installing
Any indication on what component would cause BSOD text scrambling during a crash? (This might be a clue to my problem)
