just recently bought an asus sabertooth 990fx mobo and was faulty so got a replacement.
now the second mobo is showing the same problems.
dont no weather or not the mobo is faulty again or its my other components.
current spec is:
athlon ii x3 425 2.7ghz
asus sabertooth 990fx
8gb ddr3 ram
xfx radeon hd 6870
1tb western digital hdd
corsair cx500 psu
everything was taken out of my computer, i only upgraded the mobo, but all parts work fine.
windows 7 has been reinstalled 3 times.
when i turn the pc on the boot screen flashes about 10 times before i can read it (where it says F1 for bios) and then when it gets past this it crashes when the windows sign appears.
the only way to make it boot properly so i can access windows its to reset it with the cmos (whatever its called)
can anyone diagnose the problem? is it the mobo? or psu?
