After months of trying to find out a solution to way my computer was crashing, I finally was able to pinpoint it to the motherboard after it went up in flames!!!
I've just forked out on a new PSU - XFX 750W Black Edition Modular PSU, which (thank god) didn't burn out as did the other two PSU's I had before. So I have barely enough money to buy a new motherboard but will need to keep the AMD Phenom X4 9950 for now.
Anyone got any advice on which motherboard I should go for, keeping in mind the CPU I have?
I stripped another motherboard I had in a MediaCentre machine I forgotten about and all my other components work like a charm. The only problem is Windows 7 will not boot and restarts on an endless loop. I have searched the net and found it to be a common problem but people have gotten it to work WITHOUT FRESH INSTALLING.
The motherboard I am now using is ASRock N68C-S, please see my signature for the other components.
Here is what I have tried:
Safe Mode via F8
Fix hard didk contoller via Hiren's BootCD
None of the above have worked, using the old motherboard to strip windows of driver's a no go as well...
If anyone else as any other ideas, much thanks would be appreciated as I would much rather avoid from backing up and doing a fresh install.
