Greetings and salutations fellow pc enthusiasts. I am stumped (i know i said i am a pc
) so here is the deal
Gigabyte GA-M790x-DS4 w/ AMD Athlon 64 x2 5200 (2.6 GHz)
2 GB DDR2 PC5300 667MHz
Nvidia GeForce 7600GT
Maxtor Diamondmax 200GB HD
Vortec 480W power
Windows XP SP2
This machine had been running fine for months until 2 days ago I found it with no video. I did a reset and got one long post beep but again no video. I did this one more time and the pc failed to boot at all.
Since this was my wife's machine and since the nearest available working machine is mine, I was highly motivated to get her back up and running.
Gigabyte GA-M59sli-s5 w/ AMD athlon x2 6400+ (3.2GHz)
2GB Patriot DDR2 PC6400 800 MHz
EVGA GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB
CUG 700W power
I simply moved her Maxtor over to the new machine and loaded the appropriate MB drivers and everything was running great... until about an hour ago... the machine just shuts off. I tried to power it up and nothing. I waited a few minutes and the machine did power up, but about 5 minutes later it shut down (I mean insta-off).
Build number 2 had been running as a Vista machine with no problems for months before I switched the hard drive.
As a follow-up, I installed a new power supply into build #1 with a Vista Hard Drive and the machine will flicker when the power button is pressed, but no power up. Build #2 is completely unresponsive.
What is going on ?!?!?!?!?
Thanks in advance and let me know if you need more info
