That display port cable problem.
I'm looking for some help. I'm getting boot loop with my home built PC. I built it in August 2018, and it was running fine until last week. I thought it was a motherboard issue (possibly due to 20 pin DP cable - replaced with 19 pin), but now I'm confused. I took out the graphics card and I replaced the Asus motherboard with a Gigabyte one, but the problem remains.
The computer posts, windows begins to load, then I get BSOD. Different messages, including whea uncorrectable error.
The same issue occurs when I try to boot from a Win 10 USB boot drive, with the same messages. I tried this with both the existing HDD installed and also removed that and tried a formatted SSD as if it would be a fresh install.
I've tried both sticks of RAM separately in different slots. No difference.
I can't get into safe mode, nor command prompt.
I'm at a loss as to what the issue might be, I'm guessing it is either the PSU, or both RAM sticks are faulty. I would be grateful for any advice! Thanks!
