Thread: Wierd behavior or not?




  1. #1

    Default Wierd behavior or not?

    If you know anything about this please help me out. I am about done building my new machine. Well, anyway I started it up just to make sure everything was working like I have always done before I finish. I shut it down and when I went to restart it it would flash on and off and on and off and would not stop until I shut off power. It would continue to do this until I reset cmos. I tried again and it did it again. If you are familiar with this problem or if there even is a problem let me know. Thanks.

    first step - strip down the system until you have the minimum stuff installed

    then try it again

    It's either your video card came loose or it just died.
    My experience with video cards - don't reset or restart too often.
    I lost my 7600GT in that manner, trying to remove viruses and malware.
    In the end, I bought a cheapo 8500GT, reformatted my drive, and installed Vista.

    When you do reinstall in XP, install everything then do a one-time restart.

    btw - what flashes on and off? the lights at the front of the case or do you mean the whole thing turns on and off
