Hi I am currently trying to determine the cause of system crashing and I am unsure whether it is the motherboard or the CPU. I have attempted to boot multiple times with different results.
The system has been stable for over a year, however some components are ageing (3ish years)
Boot attempt have yielded the following. 1 successful load of windows followed by a crash with grey bars covering the screen. 1 attempt to load bios. Mobo bios loads but then crashes. Multiple attempts to boot result in black screen no motherboard bios loading screens or anything and a single beep sound that repeats every 10 seconds or so.
The system is a phenom 2 quad core with an asus am3 motherboard.
Crashes during bios lead me to believe that it is the mobocracy or CPU at fault.
