2GB 1066MhZ DDR2 (RAM)
AM2+ 4MB Socket 9950 Black Edition 3.6Ghz(AMD Phenom) (CPU)
MSI K9A2 CF-F AMD 790 Socket AM2+ Motherboard
9800 GT XFX 512 MB Video card (Nvidea)

My Problem:

Was on Desktop computer playing WoW when i suddenly got a bluescreen. it did its stuff and restarted my computer. I figured it was my ram because its running at 1066MHz while people online kept saying that it was unstable at this speed (btw i have gotten a lot more bluescreens before this) so i put it down to 800 MhZ then saved and it restarted and then nothing. It rebooted but with nothing on the screen not even the beginning bios writing. I turned it off and restarted it and yet again nothing. All fans start up and lights turn on but nothing on the screen. I tested my video card in another computer and it worked fine so its not that. I believe its either CPU or Motherboard but dont no which to replace


PS i believe its the Motherboard but im not sure

What are the specs on your PSU? You can try with one stick of memory to see if it will post.

Did you try clearing the CMOS (BIOS) by shutting off the power supply (or unplugging it from the wall socket), pulling the on-board battery and using the jumper pins?
