My pc crashed today while playing GW2 and started a continuous boot cycle. It will let me into the bios sometimes only to reboot within a minute and other times it reboots before I can even get to the screen to hit F1. I fully disassembled my tower and cleaned it out again, removed the hard drives and booted it via USB, removed the memory, swapped PCIE slots, unplugged the dvd rom and still the same problems. The only time I had it not reboot is when I removed the power plugs from my 670gtx. plz help. I have also tried unplugging the tower, removing the battery from the motherboard, and holding the cmos reset button on the back of the board for 10 seconds.
Sometimes I can boot up Ubuntu from my usb but within a minute or 2 it will start up its boot loop again.

I have had this build up and running for well over a year now with no issues until this. I do not have this system overclocked nor have I did any recent updates.

Update: Windows 8 (attempted using Ubuntu)

8gb of corsair Vengeance
Intel 2600k cpu
Nvidia MSI 670gtx Graphics card

Check that the fan in the power supply is spinning .

And even if it is I think you need to try another psu to see if that makes a difference

Ok, I am currently running the Corsair H100 Heatsink and both fans spin up on the radiator. I will try the PSU swap tomorrow. Thanks for working with me here, this has given me a headache.

The psu fan does spin up. I tried swapping out the psu with a spare and it still does the boot loop.

When I remove the power plugs from my video card it sits on a screen telling me to make sure the power is plugged into the video card and does not continue to cycle on the boot up.

Sometimes with everything connected I can get it to load windows and right before the Windows login screen would come up it will begin cycling again. But that is the furthest it will go.

Any assistance on this would be greatly appreciated.

After letting my pc sit for a couple of days unplugged, I hooked everything back up and reseated my cpu. I was able to boot to my bios screen and reset everything to default. After the pc was on for about 1/2 hour it started going through it's boot cycle again. It seems as though the temperature of something is increasing as the tower is running causing the pc to go into it's boot loop. Once it is on for a while it gets stuck in a continuous boot loop. The boot loop is odd though. It isn't consistent. It can load up one time where I can view through the temperature settings and next time it won't even let me get through the post screen. The temps in the system monitor never increase over 74 Degrees Fahrenheit for the CPU or 80 Degrees for the motherboard. I am at a loss here..... Short of ordering a new MOBO and trying that, I can't seem to find the problem here.

I am running this system in a Antec Landboy air case and was wondering it anyone knows the location of the system speaker in this case.

Ok, while looking for a system speaker I decided to check out my front panel items (such as the power switch, LEDs, and reset).
I disconnected the reset switch wires from the mobo and tested it out. (guess what.... It works normally now) I plugged the switch back in and it boot cycles. Problem solved. I will keep the reset unplugged until I locate a replacement switch.


I guess this forum doesn't allow me to mark my own post as a solution?

Still running steady and no power loss. This is around 5 hours later since I pulled the reset button wires from the motherboard.
