Windows 7: Asrock 970 Motherboard not posting (most of the time)

19 Apr 2012   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

It could be the PSU, it could be the MoBo. I would run the test's that Essenbe presented just to get them out of the way. Your statement about having the PSU switched off enabling a perfect boot is what makes me suspect the PSU. But, since the power from the PSU is routed through the MoBo for so many of the components, it could be the MoBo as well. I'd say, if you have the spare PSU lying around, it won't hurt to give it a shot.

Let us know.
