pc problem...deja vu !

Post  DirTyDeeDs on Sat Aug 08, 2009 10:03 pm

my pc aint working again
doesnt post, monitor light blinks, one second on - one second off, repeatedly.
I have spare parts.
I tried another ram, gfx card, power supply, and cpu. one change at a time. nothing changes, same blinking monitor light.

when I had a computer not posting in the past, I got no monitor light activity... so IDK.
I havent tried a couple of things like, removing sound card, a stick of ram, or gfx card to see if anything changes. I will try those next. I had to take a break, I was so frustrated.

I ASSume its the motherboard again...sigh. It was a used/refurbished board when I bought it. If I have to buy another board, there is no fuckin way I am sticking with the same type of board. I will have to get something newer, maybe an evga780i. sigh. $170 bucks

after all the drama of no posting computer. it decided to work. If it weren't for my recent troubles and my knowledge gained from troubleshooting, I would say 'its the operator'.
Clearly some sick joke of a higher power is at work here. Rolling Eyes

i think its sound card related

i remove the card and it posts fine.
for now I swapped out my XFi sounds card with a pci slot card that came with the board.

Evil or Very Mad alright I have had enough of this bullshit. mad2
this not posting issue appears random and getting more frequent. today I discover no posting at all. Fed up, I ordered a new board that will accommodate my current memory and CPU, maximizing my performance and minimizing my costs at the same time. Evga 780i.

due to arrive in 2-3 days
