hi, one day I booted my computer up like any other and bare In mind it is a custom pc and It is under 3 month old and yeah I was in game on battlefield 3 and it crashed so I thought nothing of it I just shut my pc down by holding the power button then I restarted it, it made be click system repair then i started the game back up and was playing for hours then it happened again so when I clicked system repair I just get a black screen so I tried again and clicked start without repair and I get a black screen again I thought it could have been RAM so I tested it in my friends pc and it worked I tested my graphics card in my friends pc that works fine tried the PSU that's fine and after some research I found out it was leaning toward the Hard drive being corrupt so I ventured out today and bought a new hard drive and when I plugged it all in all that fired it up with the original windows 7 disk I bought thinking that i would do a fresh install and everything would be fine but to my horror it wont read it it just says loading files and then after that I get a black screen so I no it isn't the hard drives at all that only leaves one thing the motherboard but the cpu fan spins everything works on it fine it just wont boot at all or read the windows 7 disk it isn't the disk drive I know that I tried that on my friends psu so it could only be the motherboard. I tried a program called DBan and that booted up straight away and when I went to click format hard drive it just sticks and wont go no further I tried safe mode but it says loading files and just stick's after loading a few files I have went into bios and made sure everything was fine so I think im going to get a new motherboard. I went to the windows 7 website and downloaded windows 7 home premium 64 bit ISO. burned it to a disk and it does exactly the same thing so I really have no clue now.

WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK I AM AT A REAL LOOSE END ANY HELP WELCOME.

Sorry Karl, my brain hurts after trying to read this - you need to format things so that it's easier to read (not one big chunk of text)!

If you purchased this as a 'custom PC' then contact the seller.

If you built this yourself then very carefully reconfirm all motherboard and peripheral connections.

Like Mesa said re check all connections by doing a quick re build, also has this machine been used for over clocking etc? If so what parts, it is possible you could be dealing with heat damage. Did you ever monitor the temps while in BF3? What were they like?

It does seem like it, on an off chance I'm pretty sure AMD has the memory controller (for ram) stored/used from AMD cpu's.
Should the motherboard not be the issue consider this, as unique environments with heat damaged or faulty hardware can be VERY specific.

haha thats excellent, kitchin ftw.
Well gl, another possibility that could be completely un related to hardware is the boot manager may have become corrupt which would support your initial idea of hard drive error - but a new hard drive, fresh install and the same symptom. Really does point to the storage controller/north bridge/south bridge error.

yeah I went to a huge pc store today and explained everything and he put this testing device on it an he said everything was fine but the motherboard and he explained that the controller had corrupt like you said and the 3 pin fan ports had stopped working to but yeah I spent a lot of money on this pc and was pretty p1ssed about it braking. Also he tested everything to make sure but he said it was a really good pc and so on it must have been sort of dodgy board but I upgraded to a asus one here is the link here.
