Windows 7: Right or Wrong Diagnostics ?

ESC KV1 Deluxe (V1.0).

I can't make heads or tails if it's the motherboard or the video card, the video card fan is spinning, it is keeping the video chip cool, if it wasn't spinning it would be a clear sign. Hopefully can someone try to put the spot light on what it is ? I've also ruled out a RAM DIMM that is on deaths door, because of static discharge at times turning off the entire computer, over time just fried a RAM DIMM. I don't really know, this is puzzling.

What I worry the most is one day the computer doesn't turn on, when it does go off the monitor shuts off while everything else continues to operate, strictly resetting the computer (reset button on case) causes the beep code (1 long, two short). Turning the computer off, and back on again, everything boots, fine.

Do you have a good spare PSU you could try? if the one in the computer now is the original it could well be dying on you by this point. Faulty power would cause all of the problems you are seeing now. If nothing else, it's an easy thing to check.

The reset button does the same thing as pulling the power cable out while the PC is running. It can cause file corruption and may mess with your hardware too.

The power supply is brand new, you telling me it could be the power supply ? How do you explain why graphics on web pag es don't completely render ?, only half of the graphic is displayed, I can't say it's with all web graphics, as for example, the signatures on this forum, render but other pages have issues. I really don't know this is odd, the only thing I can officially notice is web graphics, not completely displaying as I mentioned. It could be a electric magnetic static issue, and something is slowly dying, hmm.

I said it could be the PSU, assuming it was the original one. Go back and read what I wrote again.

Of course, you could have listed the PSU in your specs, which we have had to drag out of you bit by by and item by item. Would it be so unusual for someone running a system with a CPU which was released in 2007 to have a five year old PSU as well? You didn't mention any of the incomplete graphic rendering until just now, too, so I can't really think of any reason why anyone would have tried to explain that before, either. Were we supposed to guess that was happening?

Look in "My System Specs" at the bottom of one of my posts. If I were to start a thread and say "My monitor shuts off randomly, I get a beep error code, and sometimes graphics don't load completely", people would know right from the start what the problem was and what my hardware I am running. Do you think my chances of getting a quick and helpful suggestion might be better than if I were to dribble that information out piecemeal over the course of several days?

Hi Jerome,

Unfortunately, it looks like you are not going to be able to solve this problem, since you insist on not providing as much information on your hardware as possible, despite being requested to do so several times.

Do yourself a huge favour and follow this tutorial through to its completion:

System Info - See Your System Specs

Good luck,
Golden

This member has been here for over two years....Started 70 threads, 360+ posts and still no system spec's....This member is not a n00b, and has some skills, and a large amount of arrogance "System Manufacturer/Model Number IT'S A COMPUTER" . Who else has that for the first line of the spec's? It also shows that He/She can fill out those spec's if they wanted to......Maybe Jerome will fill out the spec's and that will allow any hardware problems to be eliminated, or maybe it's just too much fun to yank peoples chain.....
