The other day, my computer broke down. I was playing Farcry 3 when it suddenly shut down. I restarted it, I set the UEFI to default as I had a small overclock and I thought it might have been that.It was a mild overclock at 1.27 VCore and reaching 65 degrees under prime, so nothing taxing. So it got up and running, and then i started farcry 3 again and it shut down the moment I clicked the game.
So this time I was prompted if I wanted to start in safe mode or not. Well long story short, it shut down and gave me a black screen. No BIOS or UEFI just a black screen. Every fan runs and all leds work on mb and keyboard and mouse. So it sounds as if it is running except that it's not.
I started problemsolving and exchanging the GPU didn't do anything. It's an Asrock board so it has this digit code under upstart, telling me it's stuck at d6. Checked the internet, a d6 error means there's something wrong with the board, and how it talks to the GPU. People advice others with this issue to RMA their board.
Okay, board is dead I thought. Have had it for more than 2 years so it's done.
I go out yesterday to buy a new MB. I chose an ASUS this time. P8Z77 V, should be good for overcloocking and a better board than the one I had. So i get everything assembled again, and I start it up. And.... The problem is still there.
It wont boot, the screen is telling me it gets no response from tthe computer. LEDs and fans are running and so is the disc drive. But just a black screen.
ASUS has some leds on the motherboard that blinks as it boots, and it is telling me it is stuck in boot sequence.
So my question is, if anybody knows what my problem might be. Is it the CPU you think, or the PSU? PSU is a one year old 850 watt Seasonic bronze. MII12 I think it's called, and the cpu was an i7-2600K Sandy bridge.
I really can't afford just buying some hardware not knowing if it will fix my problem.
