    Default Computer Acting up ? Changed soem Hardware, different Problem

    Hello, I have been having a problem with my computer. I was on the web and my screen went black, video card fan went to 100%, I know b/c it sounds like a vacuum cleaner on 100%. I put Nvidia driver 318.20 in before that happened. I had to turn the switch on the PSU off then back on to boot. The computer turned on and gave me 5 beeps. I waited sometime then tried to boot it again. It booted fine. Worked for a wile then went black after a few hours. I turned the PSU off and waited and then booted it again. I rolled the video driver back. Then it happened again after less time, did it all over again and came back on but lasted less time. Till it finely would just give 5 beeps. So I looked around and seen that people ware having the same problem with the Xion 700W AXP-700K14XE PSU. So I got the Cx 750m. Put that in the computer booted fine then 10 mins or so, Black screen and fan up on video card. I then seen Posted to FB, that that 318.20 Driver was messing up cards. So I RMAed it and EVGA sent me another 560 ti fpb card. I put that in and the computer booted fine never went off. Today I took out AVG and was told to restart. I restarted and the screen was just black, no beeps. I turned the PSU off and tuned the power on and black no beeps. I tried the PSU a few more times, same thing. Then I tried it once more and it was black with short beeps that kept going, with pauses in them, faint sounding, not loud. So I took out 3 sticks of ram and tried to boot and just got a black screen no beeps again. I then put the other 3 sticks of ram back in and the computer booted up, with the screen that showed that the system failed to boot a few times and did its thing. Then it booted and has been on since. WTF this computer is driving me crazy! I thought it was fixed! I am thinking my CPU is going bad? I have have it since the end of June of 2012, Brand New. The MB I got new 12/21/2012. I used the Asrock Unlock CPU core only. Also my DVD drive has been opening and closing by it self, if that helps any. Most likely if I put in a SD card in the card reader. TY!!! "All hardware is in profile"

    We need detailed information about ALL OF THE HARDWARE in your system.

    We can best help you after you create a detailed hardware list in the System Specs portion of your
    forum profile http://forums.tweaktown.com/profile.php?do=editprofile at the bottom of the
    profile page or in your forum signature http://forums.tweaktown.com/profile....=editsignature.
    Be sure to include brand names and model numbers.

    Click on my PC Specs for an example of a detailed hardware list.

    We can offer faster and more detailed suggestions when we know the complete details.
    When you list the information in a post, this means that we have to waste time and effort searching for the information.
    Some of us are helping in many threads at the same time, sometimes as many as 20 or more.
    If you don't post your detailed hardware list in the PC Specs section or in your forum signature, it makes it much more difficult for us to post suggestions that relate to your specific hardware setup. The chance of errors is greatly reduced when we can quickly check your hardware list.

    The forum is about sharing information and you make it much easier for viewers if they can easily see your hardware list and if the solution might apply to their setup.

    Can you borrow a different video card to test with?
    Can you test with another power supply?
    Is your cpu, memory or video card overclocked? If yes, what are the O/C settings?
    Have you done any stress testing with Prime95 or other stress testing programs?

    If necessary you should be able to buy a bios post card for under $15.

    Bios post cards usually use a PCI or PCI-e motherboard slot.

    just got the video card and psu, the other psu was working fine. No I never did any stress testing. The problem is only when I restart the computer. I updated the bios before that. The computer runs fine, just a problem when I restart the computer, but If I shut it down and wait for wile before I turn it on, it boots fine. I was using the UCC program but right now its not turned on. I am thinking of rolling the bios back to 1.6 from flash, usb stick. I never seen them cards before, nice! That is something I would be willing to look into! TY for the reply!

    Hmmm, I can't access your PC Specs so it is hard to try giving any advice. You did fill it out, no? A lot depends on what you have connected and the quality of these.

    I suppose you reset at least once the CMOS which cleans the bios of old HW data that was once connected to you mobo. I do it a lot, the reason I use a techbench instead of a case. It is extremely fast and easy to swap stuff and since the standoffs are plastic, I am sure of no "shorts" which can make analysis extremely messy.

    If clearing the CMOS does nothing for you, have you tried "breadboarding"--taking the mobo out of the case, placing it on the table and making the system work with the minimum HW possible? Then start adding parts until you bump into the culprit. That is what computer repair shop techs do to get to the problem quickly. For them, time is $$$.

    I hope you realize that after all the comments done, I do not know what motherboard you have? Or what proc you have? Or the OS? I suppose it is an Asrock or you wouldn't be here but pls. understand that if not much background of the HW is given and folks have to rip this info bit by bit, getting to the bottom of this will be frustrating and take much more time than necessary.

    Ok, looks good, specially the PSU, kudos. Have you tried the rest I suggested? Of course once you get back home where I suppose your rig is. Let us know.

    Yeah, the site is acting up. Also can't PM. Anybody seeing this?

    P.D. Have a new mobo battery on hand (CR2032). Mine came discharged and gave up after a couple of weeks when new, with all kinds of wonkiness--till I checked it with my voltmeter.
