Read and search the forum, but I haven't found an answer that works yet.
My computer a few months ago was fried ( no idea what happen, It was left on overnite, power went out, came back it was stuck on the windows loading screen, it was KIA, power supply went bad, and I bent a pin on my cpu, awsome.)
Fast forward to now, I got the new CPU in and power supply, the computer starts up and usally during "Detecting IDE Drivers" it will shutdown.
One time it said it detetcs my new CPU and wants to run CMOS for defaults settings ? ( I try to do so by hitting DEL I get to the blue screen, it shuts down before i get a chance to try anything.
But for the most part it shuts off during the memory test.
