So, I recently got my computer back and I tried to start it. Got all the way to the Windows desktop, then it suddenly shuts down.
Tried to start it again, it goes into BIOS, and shuts down.
Removed GPU, same problem. Changed RAM, same problem. PSU is Thermaltake 430 Watt, and I'm sure it's fine since my build uses less than 200W. Plus, I used it for 2 years without any problems. And I made sure all the cables were connected.
That leaves the CPU and mobo. The mobo is a chief suspect since one of the RAM slots is dead. It's a Gigabyte H55 mobo.
I got to the desktop and it gave me a bluescreen (DRIVER_IRQL_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL).
List of suspects:
CPU GPU Removed the GPU and switched to IGP. Same problem. RAM Switched to an older kit that I had. No luck. PSU It's a 430 Watt, and my parts use about 200 Watts under load. Plus, it has been working for 2 years. Not likely.
Mobo Hard Drive/DVD Drive If the OS boots up fine, why would it be causing problems?
