Hi guys, first post.

I've been having issues with my PC lately- it's been very unstable while loading Windows. There's been screen flickers, random reboots and the occasional failure to load at all.

I've recently replaced the CMOS battery, after having similar problems, and reading that it may be an issue with battery power to the motherboard. Now I'm completely unable to log into windows at all.

I've taken a video of the process, though I can't find a way to upload it- I'm currently posting from my cell phone. Any information would be gratefully received.

Start with these free, bootable hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html

If the system is UEFI based, you'll want to use the MemTest86 test - NOT the MemTest86+

And, you'll have to post back with the make and model of your system so we can help with getting you to boot Seagate Seatools for DOS

According to the AsRock site, the system is BIOS based.

You can use either of the MemTest's and can use the bootable Seagate Seatools to test the hard drive

 

FYI - I've recently changed the http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html page - you may want to review it to see if it's any easier to use for you.

 

Good luck!
