hello guys

well here is my problem, i was just chillin on my pc friday night and my pc shutsdown and reboots and since it wasnt uncommon (kinda happening when i overloaded my pc with **** turned on.) but then its before the windows logo it turns black, my screen doesnt shut down, it just turns into the color black.

So after that i tried to login wndows safe mode and it gets black again, everytime i tried to get into the windows it just turned black safe mode, previous functioning settings nothin worked

then i got my windows cd to format, i put cdrom priority above the disk and all that, i turn it on goes into "boot from cd" then again black, tried and tried 2 friends came to help me over.

it prob means that something on my hardware got fried but before i go out and buy a new one i was hoping maybe someone of u genious could make a miracle happen and get this fixing

thank you

What Power Supply Unit do you have in the computer?
Have you recently added any new hardware?
Have you opened up your computer (make sure it's turned off) to check that everything is firmly connected.

On the computer that you are on now, can you download and burn memtest86+ to a CD or DVD and then insert the disk into the non working PC and boot to the disk. You may need to change the BIOS order to enable your computer to boot to the disk first instead of the hard drive. If you do not have a CD to hand, there is a USB alternative also available on the page. If you use the USB method, change the boot order to USB as the first device. When the program begins, let it run for at least 7 passes.
If you don't know how to change the boot device, give me the make and model of your computer and I will walk you through it.

memtest86+ will run a test on your RAM. It should run. If it doesn't then I would start to look at replacing your power supple unit or getting someone to lend you a known working one and replace it with your temporarily just to see if it was a faulty power supply.

Could you give us the make and model of the computer.

Is this a Desktop computer or laptop? If it is turning black in the boot process then there is a major problem with the video card. Are you using a separate Video card or the onboard VGA? If it's a desktop and you have a video card, Reseat the Video Card into the slot. If that fails, remove the card and use the onboard video.
