My computer is going into an infinite loop of turning on, then within 10 seconds, turning off. It appears some of the CPU socket pins are damaged. I failed at getting it to work, so thought I would order a new motherboard, possibly some DDR3 RAM.
Any recommendations are appreciated...probably willing to spend $500 on everything if it would be worth it.
Thank you for your input, specs are below, and let me know if damaged CPU socket pins could cause what I am seeing...only two appear to be damaged:
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS (Perpendicular Recording Technology) 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM
LITE-ON LightScribe Black 20X DVD±R Burner with 12X DVD-RAM write Black IDE Model LH-20A1H-186
Antec NeoPower 550 550W ATX12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply
Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Conroe 2.66GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor Model BX80557E6750
After talking with some people it seems best to get a new processor also.
I have a few combination ideas with DDR3 1600, and quad-core processor but wanted to see if anyone had any opinions here, on what a good combination may be for a gaming pc; willing to spend up to 1,000.
