So I have a crazy system. let me give you the specs
MOBO: ASROCK G41M- VS3
CPU: pentium 4 3.4Ghz
RAM: 2x2 GB ddr3 1333 Mhz
GPU nvidea 220
450w bad quality power supply
rest is not important.
So I bought this system a year ago at a local shop in Iraq.
It worked fine until my brother had set up a password on the PC. So I booted hiren's boot CD. And removed the password.
no problems until here. Then suddenly the computer would just freeze after like 50 seconds. even in BIOS.
So I took the ram out. GPU out , hard drives out. Tweaked with those things.
Then It wouldn't boot at all.
so then I decided to take it to a repair shop where I used to work.
After a few days to called me, saying the didn't know the problem and cannot fix it (because the shop was specialized in laptop repair). So I took it to a other shop. there the guy hooked up a VGA cable and the power. And tada it worked. (so without doing anything) (and he restarted it a few times also)
so now at my home I hooked up everything and I start it up the PC . POST comes up. ok windows comes, but gets stuck. I rebooted, but nothing.
so these are the things I did.
plugged of mouse etc.
and in the shops I went the check'd the following;
RAM is ok
GPU is ok
power supply is ok.
and it also good to mention I have a UPS.
so what should I do now?
Hope you guys can understand it! Because I am not a native English speaker.
Oh and I don't know this is the right subforum. so move if needed.
