Windows 7: URGENT! My baby (computer) died :(

Vista Ultimate x64, Windows 7 RC 7100

Just got off the phone with someone that saw my help post on Craigslist and they said it could be the power supply losing voltage or the monitor. I've got a new monitor coming in today so I'll try that and the power supply to. Only problem is all my other PCs that still work are to old to even remotely power up this machine. Also, took the memory out and no beeps, I'll hook the internal speaker back up and test it to.

This may be a moot point but how long have you had b7077 installed? It sounds like a wake-up from sleep problem just like mine had, I went back to b7057. Maybe this is different..

XP Pro SP3 x86/Vista SP2 x64/Win7 x64 Triple-boot

OK, hope you manage to sort it, I know how sickening it feels when your main PC is poorly.

Best of luck with it and keep us all informed.

Edit: He said he's tried hard booting 3-4 times Beginning, wouldn't that 'wake' it?

It did happen the same night I installed b7077. But wouldn't it of started back up if I hard rebooted though?

Test the power supply.
You may have power to some outputs but not all? :)

Vista Ultimate x64, Windows 7 RC 7100

Just hooked everything back up and what would you know some of the power connectors are literally missing. I was wondering why they were super easy to pull out to. But it were to I wasn't using and everything, I mean EVERYTHING turned on and powered up but still I see nothing on the monitor and my USB devices don't work. I'll try unhooking the gfx card and see if that gives power to the USB devices.

Hi Bryce,

Sorry to hear about your problem. It is possible that it is down to you overclocking your CPU. Many can be safely overclocked by between 5% to 10% with no ill effects, but you have overclocked yours by 25% which is quite a large amount. There is nothing wrong with overclocking - indeed, I have done it myself on one of my previous systems - but it can lead to a significant reduction in the serviceable life of the overclocked components. They can be running OK one moment and can die the next.

However, there is one thing you can try and that is resetting the CMOS to its default values.

I suggest that you use the method of removing the battery, waiting a few minutes, and then reinserting it.

Hooked everything up and turned on. Everything powers up but still nothing on the monitor or power to the USB devices. I unhooked the graphics card to see if that was taking to much power and still nothing on th USB devices or monitor. There is a quick "hummmmm" when I cut it on but I can't really tell where it's coming from though. I called Best Buy, whinces and they said they'd do a free test on it should I just take it up there. I know, asking about that on a computer forum, but I don't know what else to do.

EDIT: I've already tried resetting the CMOS. The guy I called up from Craigslist suggested that.
