I'm having a problem with my computer, sometimes when i'm using it the screen just stops displaying images and rebooting doesn't work, i have to open the computer and let it with a single memory stick, and then it'll boot fine and i can turn it off and put all the memories again and it'll run fine until it happens again, some time ago when this first happend the speaker beeped 5 times, i took the memory sticks to a store so they could test it for errors and they said that the sticks were fine.

My specs:

Motherboard: ASRock Deluxe5

Memory: 4x Corsair DDR3 2GB

Video card: 2x AMD Radeon 6870 1GB (Crossfire)

PSU: Corsair GS800w

CPU: AMD Phenom II x6 3.2GHz

Some time ago i was having weird pixel issues on my screen but i found out it was the HDMI cable being too heavy and not being properly connected.

I'm sorry if this is the wrong thread but i couldn't think where to post this.

The 5 beeps means system cannot detect your VGA card.

Please kindly refer to below suggestions for testing.
1. Clear CMOS to try.
2. Re-install your VGA card to try again.
3. Install the VGA card to another PCI-E slot for testing.
4. If possible, please change another VGA card to check whether the symptom is caused by the VGA card.

Thank you!

I tried switching my VGA cards, putting the one into the first slot into the second one and the second one on the first, So i guess i already did steps 2,3 and 4, I will try clearing the CMOS to see if it fixes it.

Well i tried clearing the CMOS by pressing a button that on the back of the motherboard, close to the USB entrances and the VGAs' HDMI entrances, Then when windows just finished booting the screen went black and the CPU fan stopped spinning, i forgot to mention that everytime the screen went black while i was using it the CPU fan just stopped spinning.
