need some help
I shut down my system for a restart earlier today and now it will not boot.
Well sort of.
I get it restarted to the window's startup recovery window. and it tells me that I need to insert the cd and select repair. I insert CD and restart, boot from the CD and it just keeps telling me that it is missing the winload.exe file.
So I popped in my ubuntu disk and get to the point where I need it to ubuntu live from the CD it thinks for a second and then has a power failure.
it also does this if I select start windows normally.
I've pulled my drives and they are all fine.
I've put in a new PSU, went from a 600w to 1000w and it still is giving me the power issues.
I'm going to try booting each of my sticks of ram individually once I get everything backed up.
if thats still a no go, what do you all suggest? The bad part is, I need as much power as I can get as soon as I can. I'm in the middle of a large project, editing video.
system specs are:
Core 2 Quad Q8200
3 X 2gb DDR2 800 Corsair ram
XFX Radeon 5770
4 x 1tb HDD
600W Antec Earthwatts PSU
It runs 24/7 but I never let it push hotter than 65C on all 4 cores, I've got it all sitting inside the XCILO Windtunnel full ATX tower, there is plenty of airflow.
My motherboard seems to be running just fine, the bios navigates seamlessly.
I was able to get the windows memory diagnostic to run through 4 passes with no issues.
I really just need some help, and I really hope my processor is not dead.

I'm not overclocking at all, but I do run the system 24/7.
I have not tested the PSU with a PSU tester, but I have hit it with a volt meter and it all checks out fine.
I am going to see if I can get memtest to run, the rest of my Ubuntu disk caused power failure.
