Computer Failiure Please Help

by konwiddak / March 27, 2007 5:24 AM PDT

I have a mates computer which im trying to fix after it stopped working yesterday. What heppens is when you turn the computer on it posts fine and then goes to the black and white windows screen saying something along the lines of there was an error last time windows was used blah blah.
It has a countdown from 30 in one corner and gives me the options:
Safe mode
Safe mode with command
Safe mode with networking

Last known Good configuration

Start normally

If i select start normally it resets itself, if I select safe mode it begins to load but when it gets down to JGOGO.sys it freezes or restarts itself and if I select last known good config it just gives me a completey blank screen or resets itself.

I thought that maybe some file was corrupt so I tried booting it from the windows disk.The windows disk boots up everything on that blue screen, and then when at the bottom it says starting windows it dies or resets itself.

I have tried:
Different Ram
Different Graphics Card
Tried to reinstall windows (from 2 different disks)
Re-sat all heatsinks
Tried Different Hard drive
Tried different cd Drive
Tried clearing cmos and updated the bios to latest version

I suspect that the motherboard is broken. Will be trying
Any help would be really appreciated as he needs this computer for i30.

Specs:
AMD 3500+
1Gb ram
7600GS 256mb
160gb sata II hdd
ASrock 939Dual-SATA2 motherboard

Dead motherboard

In reply to: Solved?

Thanks for the help. Unfortunately it still doesnt work. I made some progress thoug, by moving the RAM into slot 2 the computer now loads a little bit further. This makes me think for certain that there is something funky going on with the motherboard.
