I just used my computer, played a game or did some work, then i turn it on. Then the next time i turn it on, it either works or it become black after loading Bios. When it becomes black after loading Bios, i tried to spamclick F8 to get to the options. Here i tried to just start up the windows normal, but when I'm choosing windows XP the computer freezes. After a couple of tries, if I'm lucky, I finally succeed to start windows. When that happens everything works fine.
What i tried so far is to format the entire disc. That would might repair any damaged files. So that worked fine. Installed all the programs, drivers. Then suddenly the computer started lagging. Small lag spike every 3-4 sec. I had that before, where a reboot fixed it. But then again, i had the same problem. It went black after loading Bios. The computer isn't even loading.
Run the diagnostic/repair software from you hdd's mfg website from a floppy to make sure your hdd isn't failing. If it's not the hadd, run memtest to check your RAM and if the RAM tests OK, try a different PSU
It would be helpful if we had some specs on your computer, is this a store bought computer, if so what brand, and model number, or is it a custom hand built Rig?
From the symptoms you listed this really sounds like an overheating issue to me, but I cant say so with confidence until I find out more about the computer, so get back to us with the info I am requesting.
you still didn't list your psu, i believe thats the problem, not enough amps on +12v i bet for that 8800gt, also make sure you have your sata/ide connector plugged in TIGHT..same goes w/ the power connectors.
already checked for any virus or anything related. My anitvirus updates daily.
Before buying my PSU, i asked if it would run my computer and he said he would't be a problem with that PSU, so i trust him. I had a 360W before which also could run it, but was a bit lot though, so think this is okay.
