I had this once.. turned out to be a dead motherboard. Once your machine is running, do you have any other problems? Also, can you check and see if your PSU is working as it should and giving stable power?

1. Get rid of any OC if you have 1.
2. Prime 95 12 hrs min to test CPu stability.
3. Memtest 8 passes min to test RAM.
4. Make any changes/updates to system recently?

actually i did some oc since last week.
i think the second time after oc the bios told me that oc failed
also i think my mobo is not dead cuz it beeps once when i start up the computer.
my psu is definitely working cuz i did start up the computer several times but not all the time.
and also is kinda confusing because the first time i got this problem i thought that my graphic card is broken so i changed one and it worked and i changed bios battery too. :pfff:
