So I am in the middle of an upgrade to Haswell lol. But I have already started my upgrade somewhat. I replaced my power supply last week, and everything has been great till now. I must mention that I have had Window's loading problems in the past. This motherboard is strange. If it is not over 60F degrees it will not boot anyway. It also had that annoying double boot thing too (where it starts up and then turns off then starts again) that some ABIT's did. Since the firmware update to the bios a couple of months ago that has decreased. I will also have some issues with loading Windows where I have to restart the computer a couple of times, but that has decreased many times over since I updated the bios.

This time there is an added thing with my computer not loading Windows, and that is my pc speaker clicking for about 5 seconds about 10 seconds after starting its boot. This is followed by the system starting up and going to windows, and then freezing at the Windows 8 loading screen. Presently my specs are:

Old Parts
E6550 Core 2 Duo
4gb ddr2 800
IP-35e Abit motherboard with the last version of firmware
WD 250gb 3.0 sata
8800gts 320mb
Lite-on DVD-R/RW

New Parts
Seasonic X series 850w psu
Cooler Master HAF 912

I have a feeling that the new psu is the problem, but this computer is wack sometimes anyway. The clicking is a new problem that I have read in past threads often turns out to be bad psu's.

My current diagnosis has led me to unplugging the DVD drive and the hard drive, and the system still clicks. I know trying my previous psu is probably the next step, but Just wondering if anyone had any advice.

Thanks

I have decided that if changing the psu out works I am going to just buy Ivy Bridge just so I have new components when I am calling tech support. Unless you think that my psu will hurt my new components. Anyway will go change out to the old one and then will see.

Check that the heat sink is oriented correctly. I once had a MOBO that would have symptoms similar to yours... would repeatedly click but would then either hang or reboot. The heat sink on the psu needed to be in a particular orientation or the psu would overheat! Go figure.
