Weirdest problem ever encountered.

Okay, I assembled a list of parts to build my own computer and ended up doing that around 3 months back. Working flawlessly, the computer would do everything perfectly. Until now; during just any old skype session, my computer randomly froze and shut down. Upon booting it back up I was greeted with horizontal blue lines and the bios displaying odd text.. I came to the conclusion that my OS may have messed up but decided it shouldn't affect the Bios.. I researched it a bit and people with similar (but still different) problems said it was the gpu or bios. Any help would be very much appreciated, I don't have an extra graphics card to test. Pics below to show problems.

All that really should be needed are cpu gpu mobo and ram

Cpu: 2600k
Gpu: Gtx 580 (evga)
mobo: ASUS p8z68 deluxe gen3
ram: corsair vengeance 16 gb













Thanks guys

Looks like you're using Windows 8 DP. That isn't meant for regular use and only for testing.

I am, but it does run mostly off of a base of windows 7 and will not contribute to a problem like this, it hasn't done that for any of my computers.

But you really shouldn't be using the developer's version at least until beta comes out. Even then I don't recommend it because it could cause something like this.

I say you go wipe out that HDD and reinstall Windows 7.

I noticed after I took the ssd out, the bios still had the blue lines and the weird characters, I suppose I can try putting my laptop ssd with windows 7 in it and see if there is an significance. I know I should be using windows 7 but I am waiting to get my hdd before doing that.

Is the BIOS corrupted then? I'm fairly sure that mobo has a BIOS switcher thingy. Try that.

What do you mean by Bios switcher thingy?

There is usually a tiny switch that lets you use the back up BIOS. Look it up on your mobo's manual.

It looks like the bios reset didn't work.. Moving on to new suggestions.

I've also tried putting in a windows 7 ssd that works but wouldn't boot fully when attached to the desktop

I mean the source code of win 8. I have had the dev preview and I had terrible source coding issues

Tried with 7 and no luck, I think it's one of the hardware pieces or the bios itself
