I got a barebones kit this past christmas. MSI 785 mb, ultra 2g ddr2, wd 500g hard drive, amd athlon II x2 cpu, lite-on dvd writer, powerup case w/450 psu. This is only my second build and everything went well initially. about a month ago loaded sc2 on the pc. got a paged pool problem. being the idiot i am i followed advise to change the registry part to ffffff instead of 000000. game ran great however after i would stop playing the windows screen would lock up for a minute. then i noticed the POST screen would hang up. once i would get past the post after reseting, tried playing sc2 and it would crash after a few minutes. so i added another ultra RAM. wouldn't post. removed new ram. still no post. switched out mb still no post. switch out psu. still no post. even switched casing thinking power botton was bad. still no post. help!!

changed registry back to original settings the day before new ram arrived. I thought the new ram was bad causing the no post issue so i immediately removed it. so looked at all possible option. like i said swapped out the psu and mb. cpu, ram, hard drive are suspect now for no post.

Try clearing the CMOS. If no joy you could try a Repair Install of the OS.
