Hi all
my pc stoped working.
when i start it, it go to a bootloop with a black screen(with nothing on it).
working for 4-5sec and then restart itself.
this goes on and on.
also no beep sounds ever.

tried the following:
tried to remove/clean/replace slots of the ram.
tried to set my old G.Card.
tried to unplug the cables press the shutdown button for 30sec and restart.
tried to remove battery several times.
tried to unpluge every thing (cd room, HD,SSD)
tried to unpluge every thing but SSD
tired to start it without ram to check if it beeps- no beeps.
tired to connect the screen directly to the motherboard, same result(this neve working for me i think).
tried to reconnect the cables.

whay you guys think?
is the motherboard is gone?
is it the PSU?

nothing seems to work.
the screen and cables are fine(working on other pc).
please tell me if there any other thing i can try.

anyway i think it might be a good time for me to upgrade the pc.
what you recomand me to buy?

i think to upgrade the following:

-new motherboard(that support as much ram as possible)
-add ram(new ram?).
-new PSU(if needed)
-new Proccessor

basicly i think maybe to upgrade all but the G.card and the SSD.
if im going to upgrade i want a strong pc.
i started to develop some apps/progs and found i need as much ram/cpu as possible,
so i think i7 will be a must for me.


my Current PC:

graphic card: Gforce 1060 3b
motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd. H77-D3H (Intel Core i5-3450 CPU @ 3.10GHz)
Intel Core i5 3450 @ 3.10GHz Ivy Bridge 22nm Technology
ram: 8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz (9-9-9-24)
storage: 447GB KINGSTON SUV400S37480G ATA Device (SSD)

psu: thermaltalk TR2 RX 550pp
model psf500v-30



please tell me what your thoughts?
fix the old?
upgrade?
just buy a new?

thanks for helping!

Sounds like a flaky/failed motherboard. Might try a different PSU first though.

Since everything is getting long in the tooth, (Ivy Bridge, DDR3, SATA SSD), I'd consider building/buying new.

Check and see if you have any swollen or blown capacitors on the motherboard. Also, get a clean ISO image of Windows 10 on a DVD or USB and see if it will boot from them. If it does, you more than likely have a corrupted registry. The USB or ISO can repair that also.

I's start with a thermal event check, chances are the CPU fan is not running or the Thermal paste is dry, causing it to super heat and to protect the shutdown kicks in.

Another possibility is a short circuit of any components, before going in for a Mobo, do a bench test.

No Beep.. have you checked the graphics.. remove the graphics card and see if it works with onboard graphics...?? Graphic card failure usually will beep at you but as the first device checked is graphics BEFORE Bios starts hardware check, sometimes with a bad graphics card you get no response and a reboot.
