When I have a truly flaked out machine I remove the hard disk and boot up my Linux LiveCD to see what happens.
Hello. basically, a few days back my PC seemed to just freeze, I rebooted and got to the Foxconn screen where I could enter BIOS and it froze again, si reset and then I didn't even get the beeps or any image on my monitor. I then tried allsorts of ways to revive it. I then bought a new motherboard and replaced the old one and I'm having the same problem, except the fans all start running, the HDD starts to spin and then it reboots automatically and stays idle (fans running) but nothing else. I then replaced the CPU from a P4 2.8Ghz to a P4 3.0Ghz, still the same, then I replaced the PSU from a 300w to a 750w. The 2 sticks of RAM I am using is Rendition 512mb DDR2 , my motherboard was a Foxconn and is now a MSI P35/G33 Series, my graphics card is a nVidia GeForce 8400 GS 256mb. I really am stuck for what the problem is, and I desperatly need my PC back so I can revise for my interview in a fe week. Please help!
